Would be interesting to know what area of land it covers.
Could leave some for a 'Pick Your Own' income  :) . Sounds like they are on dwarfing rootstocks?
But doesn't look like Traktoristy has been back to check answers, last active Jan 4th.

BUT I've just read that sheep are OK with eating apples in moderation, but not their pips !  (Another factor to weave into orchard grazing management.) 

I fear that won't help Traktoristy decide to save his trees, but I felt I had to report my finding. 

What about poultry ?!
Apple pips contain cyanide! But... you would have to eat around 2kg of apple pips in one go to have enough to actually do some damage  ;)
Growing loads of fruits and vegetables! Raising dairy goats, chickens, ducks, rabbits on 1/2 acre in the middle of the city of Leicester, using permaculture methods.
