Sunday 16 October from 10.00am to 5.00pm in The Old Stables, Fulbourn Manor, Manor Walk
This will be our fifth apple pressing, so after last year’s event which resulted in around 250 bottles of pasteurised Fulbourn Apple Juice, join us again for another amazing day! We have already had a number of offers of apples but if you have some spare do let us know – we need lots! Bring apples on the day (in the morning) if you can, but we may be able to help you pick and/or collect if necessary during the preceding week (we have long-handled pickers for larger trees). Any quality windfalls should be freshly gathered and clean please – those covered with grass cuttings or mud are difficult to use.
If you have a few used, screw-top 75cl wine bottles, cleaned with labels removed (and all traces of stickiness also removed!) please contact us. We will sterilise the bottles and caps before their reuse.
We shall be serving drinks and cakes (including apple cakes) during the day – offers of cakes gratefully accepted. Also join the bring-and-share lunch if you wish. Many willing hands will be needed throughout the day for a variety of activities – washing, cutting, crushing, pressing, bottling, pasteurising, labelling etc. – so do come along if you can, even for just a short while. Supervised children are most welcome – we have had helpers and visitors, aged from 2 to 92, who had a great day. If possible, please let us know in advance that you will be coming to help. All helpers (and apple providers) will, of course, take home some bottles.
You are also welcome to just come and watch the action while enjoying a drink and some cake, and go away with a bottle of Fulbourn Apple Juice 2016 for a small donation! Don’t miss it!
