Fancy learning new skills in the production of heritage cider and juice, having fun and meeting some new people?
Over the last few weeks we have been busy harvesting apples and setting up our juice and cider house and we are now excited to announce that.
We will be opening our Cider House doors to you from 6th November!
We are producing delicious traditional cider and juice made by Londoners for Londoners, from community orchards across the capital, to enjoy together. With every drink you pick, press, bottle and enjoy, you will be supporting our unique London orchard heritage and helping to reduce food waste across the capital.
So here is how you can get involved
- Sunday 6th November– cider house open for apple donations (10am-1pm) and volunteers to help with PRESSING (9.45-5)
- Sunday 13th November – cider house open for apple donations (10am-1pm) and volunteers to help with PRESSING (9.45-5)
- Monday 14th November – apple juice BOTTLING (10-4)
Where you can find us:
The cider house is based in Herne Hill, South London, just a 5 minute walk from Herne Hill station, and we are sharing an arch with Local Greens who run a not for profit veg bag scheme.
Got some Apples to Donate:
Fancy seeing a bottle of TOP first pressed 2016 vintage Cider and thinking, “my apples went into that”? We will happily take any apples, whether cookers, eaters, cider apples or crab apples, big and beautiful or small and knobbly, to make our debut batch of TOP juice and cider.
We are even able to take windfalls, apples that have fallen on the floor, as long as they are not rotten and have not been picked from somewhere there could be contamination with animal faeces. If you could keep these windfalls separate from your handpicked apples then we know to sort and press these first.
