Massive juicing day at Maryport

Postby MarkEvens » Fri Nov 06, 2015 10:40 am

The group had an extremely busy day milling and pressing large quantities of fruit. The day was well attended and clearly it has been a good harvest despite the cool spring and summer. The cider club attended in force and made 200L of juice for cider. This will be stored at Wild & Fruitful until it is ready for drinking. In addition about 100L of juice was pressed and taken away - either to drink or to be made into cider at home.
Many thanks to all those who helped on the day, in particular to John Nutley, Alan Rich and Bob Lee who were the "engine room" of the juicing operation.
Special thanks also to Jane Maggs for allowing the group to use Wild & Fruitful's new premises, which also are now the base for the cider club. The facilities are excellent and we wish her every success in this next stage of Wild & Fruitful's development.
Finally, some pictures (thanks to Kate Stewart):
