How It Works
Bring your apples or pears freshly washed to remove dirt and debris before the pressing. Your one (1) hour session with two (2) people on-hand will allow for enough time to cut, grind and press about 3 - 4 bucketfuls of fruit (5 gal. each) for a fresh flow of cider!
5 gal. bucket = ~20 lbs = 1 gal. pressed juice

What about making Hard Cider?
We have instructions and equipment to advise you on how to ferment your fresh cider into Hard Cider.
A 5 gallon bucket of harvested uncut apples = ~20 lbs of apples = ~1 gallon of juice
Batches may be limited to 100 lbs (5 buckets) per visit for 5 gallons of liquid cider. Total time required (prep and processing) ~45 min.
Children are welcome, but must be under Parental Supervision. View the CDPH video of Safer Processing of Juice.
