Apple Pressing

Bring along your eating apples to press them into delicious apple juice. Any clean apples can be pressed. You can drink the juice on the day, freeze it or pasteurise it in glass bottles at home for use later. Of course you could always have a go at making some homemade cider!

We can press up to 25lbs/11kg at a time, which will yield about 10 pints/5.5l of juice.

Please bring your own sterilised plastic containers, such as lemonade bottles or milk flagons.

Bring up to two carrier bags of your apples cut up into quarters.

Every effort will be made to keep the equipment clean, but juice is drunk at your own risk.
