Ali and Richard Capper say their orchard had been filled with around 6.3 million apples before the four minute storm over the Bank Holiday weekend.
 
The Capper family have lived at Stocks Farms for 53 years and Richard has farmed there since leaving Agricultural College more than 20 years ago.
 
The couple, who live on the farm with their two children, are hoping they can sell what’s left of their apple harvest to a cidermaker.
