Community apple juicing events 2022
CARE's travelling community apple juicing service is back and bigger than ever before.
From September to November we are out visiting communities across Pembrokeshire with our apple juicing kit. If you have apples in your garden, your allotment, your community orchard, your business or anywhere else, we can turn them in to fresh juice for just 50p a litre.
Have a look below at where we're going when and to find out how it all works. If you'd like us to come to you,. we may still have space in the calendar, so get in touch soon.
Most of the events include a whole load of extra fun activities so collect up your juicy apples and come along with the family.

How it works
Bring along apples and bottles
Bring as many undamaged apples as you can want to juice. We can't juice bruised or damaged fruit but funny looking fruit is fine! We'll give the apples a quick wash but if you have time to wash them in advance, that will help.
Bring bottles or other containers with lids, to take your juice home with you.
What happens on the day
When it's your turn, we'll weigh the apples, give them a quick dunk in some water then send them in to the "scratter," to turn them in to pulp.
After that it's bottles at the ready as we turn the pulp into juice.
We'll measure what we juice, and it costs 50p litre. We'll pour the juice into your containers. to take home.
You can also take some pulp home for the compost heap if you'd like to.
The juice isn't pasteurised, so you need to keep it in the fridge and drink it in a couple of days. Or you can pasteurise it at home easily. We'll have leaflets on how to do that on the day.
See you there!
