Porlock Apple Press
Demonstration Pressing Day

Saturday 22nd October 2022
(Provisional only)
Observing the pressing 2018

Porlock Apple Press Demonstration Pressing Day
A FREE event!

The Old School Centre Orchard Garden,  10.00am to 3.30pm (ish!)

A look back to the old craft of apple juice production... centred around our early 1800's 'Somerset Pattern' apple press,  pressing many tons of apples into fresh juice for you to taste and is free for you to take away (with an invitation to make a donation... please).

Bottled pasteurised juice will be available to purchase too.

Add to this some hearty singing of some cider songs (you are invited to join as well!), vintage engines and machinery in action... means the traditional method of pressing apple juice is preserved for the benefit of future generations. The best bit..... IT'S FREE!

On-site loos, and parking is only 150yds away.

Porlock Apple Press Group are a not-for-profit entity, trying our best to preserve the apple growing & cider making history of this part of Exmoor, and the proceeds from this event all go towards that aim.
