The early shift

Our first pressing…

CHEERS – from the early shift

After a fallow 2012, a windfall of Boyton Scrumpers turned out for a busy couple of hours to chop, mush, press and bottle a bumper crop of apples. With specialist equipment hired, we took a chance with the Autumnal weather and set to work alfresco.

Bags, boxes and barrow loads of locally grown, hand-picked produce appeared. A production line formed. Windfalls, cookers and eaters processed. Two brown wheelie bins of pulp were filled.

This year seems to be much better than last for some apple trees. If so, why not come and press a few to make your own juice. We have hired a professional masher and fruit press. Tastes delicious with windfalls, cookers or eaters. Freeze blue bags are provided. Suggested donation to cover hire charges is just £3 per household.

Just turn up with whatever you have 2-4pm Saturday 12 October.
