Our final juicing event of the year takes place this Saturday at the Holmwood Marketplace at the Village Hall on Spook Hill in North Holmwood. The post code is RH5 4JP.
This is the big one! Bring your washed apples and we’ll turn them into fresh juice.
Our annual apple pressing is the major fundraising effort of Dorking Community Orchard. In return for pressing your apples we ask that you either give us half your crop so we can sell it for our funds or donate £1 a litre if you want all your juice. For example, 100kg of apples will produce 50 litres of juice. You can either give us 25 litres of juice which we will sell for £2 a litre and you can keep the rest. Or you can give us £1 a litre and take all the juice.
Please note that the juice is fresh and unpasteurised. It should be drunk or frozen within a day or two of pressing. Next year we hope to offer pasteurising and bottling for longer-lasting juice.
We’ll be back on Dorking‘s High Street pressing apples on Saturday, 20 October 2012. We’ll be next to Food Float in front of Barclays Bank. Bring your apples and a clean container for juice and be prepared to have a good time. If you have a lot of apples and need help getting them transported, please be in touch. We can help with that.
Many thanks to our friends at Families Surrey East magazine for putting a notice about this in their September issue. We, however, gave them the wrong date. It is the 20th and not the 6th.
