Calling all apple tree or orchard owners!!!
We may not be able to have Apple Day this year, but we will still be juicing another ‘Community Press’ on Tuesday/Wednesday 13th/ 14th October.
If you would like your apples to make up part of this special blend, please bring them to us by 4pm on Monday 12th October. You can leave them at the gate over the weekend as long as they are clearly labelled with your name and contact number.
We will weigh in your crop when you deliver it and add it to the harvest. Once we know how many litres we have pressed in total we will work out how many bottles each individual ‘weigh in’ has produced. This can be bought back at cost (bottle cost, staff time & pasteurisation costs).
Want to take part? Please bring us your apples!
Your apples must be ripe (brown-pipped) and with no more than 1/5 bruising or inconsistencies on each apple*. They can be cookers or dessert and any colour, size or shape.
*The juicing team may not include apples that do not meet the requirements above as it can affect the quality of the final juice.
If you have more than 60kg of apples and you would like to consider a single press of your own orchard, please get in touch by calling (01209) 718975 and we’ll do our best to help!
