Bring & Bottle

Do you have too many apples from your trees at home? Are you a school looking for a way to raise funds? Maybe you would like to have a unique christmas gift made from excess fruit. If so, we can help.

If you bring us your apples, we can press, bottle and pasteurise them for you.

Frequently asked questions

Q. - I only have a few apples, is there a minimum amount?

A. - Due to the demand for this service last season, we will be offering our service in a slightly different way this year. On arrival your apples, as a whole batch, will be sorted into either Sharp, Medium or Sweet. They then will be pressed with other customers apples to make a larger batch. The amount of juice you receive will depend on the weight of apples delivered. This is the only way we will be able to continue offering this service due to the demand. Your juice may taste different from previous seasons, but the larger mixture made possible by the larger batch size should improve the flavour of the overall batch.

Q. - How much juice will I get?

A. - It depends on the variety, condition and volume, as a rough guide, 3lbs of apples will make a litre of juice.

Q. - How long will it last?

A. - The juice is pasteurised and the bottles hot filled, we put an 18 month best-before date on ours, but the juice will keep longer.

Q. - How long will it take?

A. - All the fruit will be pressed within a week of arriving, however, we only have a certain amount of room in our despatch bay and it depends on how promptly everyone else collects their juice.

Q. - How much does it cost?

A. - The Price for the 2016 season is £1.30 per Litre. This includes pressing, bottling, pasteurisation and shrink wrapping into cases of 12.

Q. - I dropped my fruit off ages ago but it's not ready to collect. How long will it take?

A. - We have been extremely busy this year and we are working through the backlog of juice! We have pressed everything we have received so far, so don't worry that your fruit is going off, it's not! As soon as it is ready to collect, we will call you and let you know. We are making every effort to have it all cased up ready for collection before Christmas. If you could aid us in this task by picking your juice up as promptly as possible, this will ensure that we get as many peoples out as quickly as possible.
