We offer a community apple juicing service. 90% of all apples in private gardens fall and go to waste. People bring their apples to us - similar to the village olive presses around the Mediterranean. We wash, press, pasteurise (keeps for 12 + months) into glass bottles and print the customer's house name on the label. Village schools, community groups, fundraising networks also gather fruit local, bring us a batch load which we press altogether and and print their name and logo on the label. We charge a fee per bottle - discounted for groups so they can sell on to raise funds. We are busy August to Christmas - the process is very labour intensive - we would love help for at least 4 weeks. You will learn about many apple varieties, how to make and preserve apple juice, also pears and making cordial from stone fruits. The work is quite physical, moving boxes of apples or bottles of juice around. Lots of customer contact - please be smiley and positive. We are on the edge of an ancient 1,000 + year old hunting forest and close to Kennet and Avon Canal.
