First apples off to the press

2 October 2013

The first load of apples have been harvested and taken to be pressed into fresh Earthworks juice! Apple Cottage near Baldock will turn our shipment, pictured, into 100 bottles of fresh mixed apple juice, made from at least five different heritage varieties. We were even lucky enough to have a tour of the operation and the machines used, gaining an insight into how our juice will be made. Watch this space as more loads will head off in the next week or so!


After dropping off the fruit we stopped by the lake and sat in the van eating our lunch. A swan decided it either didn’t want us there or it really really fancied our sandwiches…..
