During early days, MAN was helped with Grants from the Princes Trust and Herefordshire Council for establishing our first orchard in 1995. We have been most grateful to five private land owners who have let us establish and maintain orchards on their land over the last twenty years. A very generous member made a large donation enabling MAN to buy land in near Crickhowell in 2006 for establishing our own orchard, called Paramor. Environment Wales has kindly given MAN grants to enable attendance at shows and improve Parmor.
Many members have generously given unstintingly of tremendous support to MAN in orchards, at shows, during identification work, and in committee. We have become a well-knit family of volunteers, though, as yet, we have not had the delight of two volunteers meeting and marrying.
