Community apple pressing

Lovely apple juice from your own fruit!

Lewes and many of the surrounding villages are full of apple trees and unfortunately lots of fruit goes to waste every year.

apple pressing  

Well, thanks to the generosity of the South Downs Sustainable Development Fund, Lewes Octoberfeast has its own fruit press and on Saturday and Sunday, 23rd and 24th of September, from 10am to 4pm, whether you’re an apple-grower or an apple picker, bring your apples along to the Linklater Pavilion on the Railway Land, by the river, and have them pressed for a moderate charge of 50p per litre.

Walk away with your own fresh, natural fruit juice, rather than have those apples drop and go to waste on the ground.

It’s best to bring washed fruit plus clean plastic containers to take your juice away in but we will have plastic bottles to sell at 50p each.

We’d also welcome volunteers to help with the pressing, bottling and serving of customers. It’s great fun and so if you’re free to volunteer some time please do send your contact details to mark@tasteandflavour.co.uk
