New juicing season starting soon

Regular readers will know that we make juice from otherwise unwanted apples, for your own consumption or for sale in the town. For more details of how this service operates, please visit the ‘Surplus Fruit’ tab.

Our new juicing season will start on 1st September, and will run through to the end of October. We will post juicing dates on the website and slots must be booked in advance.

Apples are ripening early this year and beginning to fall, but the dry weather means that at the moment they contain very little juice. To get the best possible juice from your fruit, please leave it on the tree for as long as possible and check for ripeness before picking. Ripe apples will have very dark brown/black pips and taste juicy.

Please note the following points:

  • We only have enough capacity to accept a maximum of 120kg apples per household from within a 7 mile radius of Kirkbymoorside
  • apples must be clean and dry; blemishes are not a problem but we cannot accept any apples with signs of rot because they potentially contain a substance which can cause illness; and
  • for hygiene reasons, we are not able to accept fruit from fields where animals graze.

Details of how to book a slot will be posted along with the dates, very shortly.
