Frequently asked questions

Q. - Do I have to book an appointment or let you know that I am coming?

A. - No, we are open Monday to Saturday, 08.30 until 17.00, just come along and we will take it from there.

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, of the same variety, 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.

Q. - How much juice will I get?

A. - It depends on the variety, condition and volume, as a rough guide, 3 lbs of apples will make a litre of juice. One of our plastic trays usually makes 12 bottles.

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. As of the week commencing the 25th of September, the current turn around is about 3 weeks.

Q. - How much does it cost?

A. - The Price for the 2018 season is £1.35 per Litre. This includes pressing, bottling, pasteurisation and shrink wrapping into cases of 12.
