Submitted by 2 Comments

Dave Grubb 10Yes indeed! We already have most of our Apple Pressing dates for 2015.

The dates and venues are:

Countryside Centre: Saturday 12th September

Pump House Environment Centre: Saturday 19th September

Green Farm at Crowle: Saturday 26th September

Croome Court (National Trust): Sunday 27th September

Westbury Street Gardens (with the Arboretum Residents Association): Saturday 3rd October

Cripplegate Park (near the Sons of Rest Building): Saturday 10th October

Trotshill Orchard: Saturday 17th October

The Commandery: Saturday 24th October

The Fold at Bransford: Sunday 25th October

So those are the dates. Now let’s hope the weather and conditions are good this year for setting a plentiful crop of fruit. Please note that ┬áif you can’t make one of these dates, or you want to have a go at running your own community pressing event, we have second set apple juicing equipment available for you to use.

There will be more details of the pressing events added later in the year.

    Hello. I was just wondering if you have more details on these apple pressing events. I’ve just moved to a property with one apple tree, and I’m looking for an apple pressing event for this quantity of apples.
    Do you know whether one trees worth of apples is suitable for your pressings, and if so, (approximately) how many bottles we should bring?

    Hi. Our apple pressing events are ideal for those with one tree or even a small orchard. We reckon on about half a litre of juice for a kilogram of apples, but this very much depends on the variety of apples that you bring along. Cookers generally provide more juice that desert apples (eaters).
