Private Pressing Service

We  receive requests to press large quantities of apples, from those who  wish to retain the juice for their own purposes. We are most pleased to  offer a pressing service, in return for a commensurate donation. As the Porlock Apple Press & Rural Crafts Festival  is a fun, family event we do not wish to detract from that theme. We  will conduct additional pressings for private individuals separately.  These will usually be done in the week or so prior, or after, the  Apple Press & Rural Crafts Festival. Please use the 'contact' form if  you wish to enquire about your own apples.

Please  note that the press is an historic piece of equipment which uses the  technology of the mid 1800's! It is therefore worth noting that the  juice yeild, while very good, is not as great as can be achieved by  modern juice extractors. Two 'cheeses' will produce 15 to 25 gallons  ordinarily (it all depends on the apples!). A single cheese requires  arround 60 - 70kg of apples.

If  your supply of apples is not sufficient to make at least one cheese, we  will combine other similar small donors amounts to ensure efficient  yeild/use of the press.

The  product is a wholesome raw and unpasteurised juice. We do not have  pasteurisation equipment, sorry.
You will also need to provide your own containers to carry away your juice.
