We will begin the day from my home where we will kit up according to the weather. This would be for adults only since sharp equipment is involved.My orchard lies about 500 metres from my home and is on a slope so being able bodied would be essential. We would walk around my orchard tasting and selecting from my heritage apples those that we will press and carry back our haul. (wheelbarrows are available!) Once home we will wash the apples and chop them in a container and press them in my hand operated press. Ideally each person should be able to go home with around two-four litres of their own pressing. Tea and coffee will be available and if participants want to bring a picnic lunch we can eat in the orchard (under my roofed deck if wet).
Il tuo host
I've been collecting, grafting (propagating) and selling my collection of apple trees for twenty five years or so. I have accumulated a great deal of knowledge and enthusiasm for apples. I have an orchard with 180 different types of heritage apples and have done 'Apple Days' at various exhibitions and fairs in the UK. I own an old fashioned apple press and it would be an experience for my guests to pick, taste, press and take home their own fresh apple juice.
Che cosa è incluso
Dove ti troverai
My orchard is not open to the public but contains one hundred and eighty different varieties of apple as well as astonishing views over the Severn and Cotswolds and quite a bit of wildlife such as deer (not guaranteed)! I have a workshop/covered deck up there (It is on a slope above the town) but we will return to my cosy kitchen half a kilometre away to do the actual pressing as this is more hygenic.

It will be a maximum of four people per visit else someone may not have time to press their juice. It is a touch strenuous but I will be on hand to turn the press whenever it is wanted. Sorry but no children or animals as it is near a working farm and sharp implements are part of the press.
