Apple Juicing October 2019 at Ye Hostelrie
The 2019 apple juicing session , Sunday 27th October, in the garden of Ye Hostelrie, Goodrich.
We were fortunate with the weather as the sun shone and there was a good attendance by both young and old throughout the day with a friendly fun atmosphere
Children and those who brought their own apples were able to make fresh apple juice, using two hand scratters and presses , to take home to drink or freeze. Any extra were added to the 60 boxes of apples that had been gathered from local orchards – most of which would otherwise have gone to waste.
The main production line was run using equipment hired from Orchard Origins (a part of Herefordshire Wildlife Trust), with the juice being taken off for bottling and pasteurising at their site in Bodenham.
In all 530 bottles were produced and all profits from their sale will go towards funding Nature Study field trips for Goodrich Primary School
