Apple Pressing Days

Join us for an amazing day of apple pressing this autumn at Rusland Reading Rooms on Monday 25th September: 10am - 3pm.  Just turn up, bring your own apples, damaged and windfallen ones are fine, press the apples and take the juice home in your containers!

Don't forget to bring enough containers to put all your apple juice in to take home.  As a rough guide, 1kg of apples produces approx. two thirds to three quarters of a litre of juice.  40kg of apples (a full load), can produce between 20-25 litres of juice.

Apple pressing equipment will be provided, plus help if this is your first apple pressing day and aren't sure what to do.

The apple press can take 40kg of apples.  You may be asked to share a pressing if you don't have a full load. 

No booking required, first come first served, just bring your apples and containers for the apple juice.

Donations would be very much appreciated.  All proceeds go towards hire of the pressing equipment and to support Rusland Horizons Trust and its future activities. Donations can be given to members of the Rusland Horizons team on the day.
