Apple Pressing, Bottling & Pasteurising

Pasteurised and bottled apple juice (keeps for at least one year). Your apples, pressed, bottled & pasteurised: £2 per bottle (75cl).

You can bring your apples to us, or if you would like to press large volumes, we’ll bring the press to you.

We will wash (if muddy), crush and juice your apples. Then filter and bottle them into glass 75cl bottles. Your bottles will then be heated in a pasteuriser to ensure they last in the bottle for up to a year (or longer if you’re not fussy!).

You’ll end up with a pure and delicious juice that is full of goodness and is incomparable to anything sold in a supermarket. Great for gifts, impressing your guests, or drinking all year round.

Please note there is a £20 minimum charge due to setup/clean-down time.

Apple Pressing

We’ll press your apples into juice for you. You supply your own containers: £1 per litre.

You can bring your apples to us, or if you would like to press large volumes, we’ll bring the press to you.

You’ll end up with a delicious, pure (unpasteurised) apple juice that can be made into cider or vinegar, frozen, or must be consumed within three days.

Please note there is a £20 minimum charge due to setup/clean-down time.

Apple Harvesting

If you would like your apples harvested, we can arrange that for you. Our labourers charge per hour / day. Please call for a quote.

Equipment Hire

Our state-of-the-art apple mulcher, hydro-press, pasteuriser and bottler will make short work of juicing and is available for hire: £200 per day.

Once you use an electric crusher and hydro-press, you’ll never go back to manually pressing your apples!

Orchard Management

Caring for an orchard can be a year-round commitment. We’re happy to take care of maintenance, pruning or even planting out a new orchard. Just give us a call to find out more.

Donating Your Apples

Is your garden covered in apples? Are you constantly clearing them up to mow the lawn but can’t bare throwing away perfectly edible fruit?

If you’re not interested in turning your apples into juice, we can sometimes make use of good apples (without rot or holes) for our small-scale experimental cider production!

Please call us beforehand to check if your apples are required (we often already have an abundance ourselves). Please note that whilst we are sometimes happy to make use of spare apples (particularly if the general apple crop has been poor), we do not pay for apples and we do not provide a free apple clearing/disposal service (!)
