Fresh apple juice !

We have had a huge variety of different people making all different amounts of apple juice from any type of apple.  Some people bring one or two buckets of apples - producing around one gallon of juice (4 - 5 litres). Some villages get together and bring trailer loads of apples - producing over 100 gallons of juice at a time!

Friendly information and advice on cider making is given, and the juice making is supervised at all times.

A fun, useful and interesting activity. Team building groups welcome.
