Please bring your apples already washed and with any bad bits cut out and you can crush and press them with our equipment. Bring clean containers for your juice; as a guide 10kg apples produces on average 5 litres of juice.

There will be a charge of £5 to cover costs of equipment hire. It may be possible to pasteurise your juice depending which event you go to, in which case you need to bring clean glass bottles (screw top wine bottles are ideal) and would cost 50p per bottle in addition.

Cider making workshop

Moor Sustainable CIC are running a ‘Cider making for beginners‘ workshop at Danby Village Hall starting at 10am on Sunday 17 October, with tuition from Julian Gaskin of TeesCider. The cost is £30 and you will be able to get your apples pressed to start off the process. To book a place email Clare Churley.


The workshop will be followed by an hour’s cider making tips and cider tasting session also at Danby Village Hall at 3pm on the 17th – if you are a cider maker we would love you to come along and share your experience and hopefully share a bottle of your cider with other enthusiasts.

Many thanks to the North York Moors Association for a grant towards our workshop and promoting our apple pressing equipment.
