Juicing the Harvest

Watch the impressive hydropress in action when the garden team juice some of their apple and pear harvest for you to taste.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

The 175 cultivars of apple growing under the care of the Acorn Bank Garden team start to ripen at the end of August, with the latest ones being picked around the middle of October. The cultivars which ripen last make the best apple juice, and the perry pears make great juice too.
