Channel your creativity in style with a Cider Making Workshop with Lunch at The Courtney’s Orchards. Courtney’s Orchards make around 6,500 litres of cider and 10,000 litres of apple juice each year.
Stroll through the orchards and discover a little bit about the best apple varieties for juice and cider. Pop into the barn to learn about the history of pressing and cider making, as well as about the project’s mission to reduce food waste. Then it’s time to get hands-on picking, washing, milling and pressing apples to make some juice of your own.
As you sip mulled apple juice, you’ll learn how to take your new apple-pressing skills to the next level and how to make cider of your own at home. It’s hungry work, so luckily a delicious lunch is included.
