Masses of apples and not sure what to do with them? You can hire a community-owned apple press from Sustainable Frome for £10 per hire period and make your own fresh juice or cider.

It’s available (with a crusher for chopping up the apples before pressing) to borrow for either a Monday to Friday or a weekend. You will be responsible for collecting the press from the previous borrower, cleaning it when finished, and arranging for the next borrower to collect from you.

The press has been used at many apple day events and in schools – it is great way to make the most of the harvest and the whole family can join in.

To find out more, or to book the press, contact Sustainable Frome – preferably by email:
