The pigs in Guisborough enjoyed their apple pomace after the apple pressing in Great Ayton. There was more food for local pigs following 225 kilograms of apples being pressed on Saturday at Lythe giving just over 100 litres of juice for those that brought their apples along to be pressed.
Fun was had by all on Saturday in Great Ayton. At the end of a busy day approximately 500 kilograms of apples, many of which would have been left lying on the ground, were turned into 225 litres of lovely tasty apple juice.
If you missed the event in Great Ayton then why not come to one of our other community apple pressing sessions at Lythe, Beyond Boundaries in Commondale, Botton or Mickleby – see leaflet for details.
Thank you to the players of the #NationalLottery as these free events are funded by The National Lottery Community Fund.
We’ve tested the new apple pressing equipment and enjoyed our first pressed apple juice. Come to our free community apple pressing event in The Royal Oak, Great Ayton, this Saturday between 11 am and 3 pm. Remember to bring your roughly washed apples with bad bits cut out and clean containers with lids.
