“Who would have thought that pressing apples could be SO much fun – and so tasty, too?! We left with pages of notes and had a great time, thank you!! Food was lovely and fascinating to get so much information on using up all of our old windfalls in such a clever way – we’re off to find more windfall and to try our hand at cider, too! A great day” CJ
Our Apple Pressing and Cider Making Experience is run in association with Vigo Presses.
Vigo Presses make around 6,500 litres of cider and 10,000 litres of apple juice each year. Its owner, Paul Courtney became an award winning cider maker in 2015, winning at the Devon County Show and a runner up in the South West of England Cider makers competitions.
If you want to make the most of your fruit, using the resources from your own back garden, allotment or friends and family, this experience day is for you!
