Apple Pressing & Cider Making Workshop

About this experience

Join us on our award winning, organic farm for a fun introduction to making freshly pressed apple juice...

If you've ever wanted to know all about growing apples, picking apples and pressing apples to make your own freshly pressed juice, join us to discover everything you need to know on this fun, one day, interactive workshop. From trees to juice, we’ll teach everything you need to know about how to make delicious and super healthy fresh juice. 

Our orchard at the farm includes cherry trees, plums, pears and several apple trees including one over 60 years old. But an "orchard" can have simply one fruit tree in it, so perfectly achievable in any sized garden! The day begins at 10am and runs to approximately 4pm, here on our farm on the Lincolnshire-Cambridgeshire border, just 4 minutes from Market Deeping, and 18 minutes from Peterborough and Stamford train stations.

We'll have welcome refreshments ready for when you arrive and, after a quick opportunity to say hello to your fellow workshop students, it's time for the fun to begin:

  • The Trees: our day begins with a short tour of our almost entirely pollinator-friendly gardens, with bees and pollinators in mind and ends in the orchard where we'll learn about tree varieties and types and how to grow healthy fruit from healthy trees.

  • Picking: discover the secrets to picking fruit for maximum taste and how to simply prepare apples for pressing.

  • Press: we use a variety of equipment to press the apples, which you'll learn all about along with simple ways to do it at home without any specialist equipment. Get hands on with assembling the equipment and pressing the juice and savour every moment as the aroma of freshly pressed apples fills the room!

  • Bottle: once pressed, it's time to bottle the juice and learn about pasteurising, whilst designing your own labels and testing your new-found knowledge in our fun Apple Quiz!

There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and get practical advice on apple pressing, throughout the day. 


We'll provide you with everything you need, including: locally sourced, home grown and organic refreshments; an organic pizza lunch cooked in our outdoor, wood-fired pizza oven; equipment and protective clothing. You'll leave with plenty of notes and resources, including a bottle of your very own pressed apple juice!

All delegates will be required to sign a declaration in order to take part in the day’s activities. Suitable for ages 16+.


We like to run our workshops fairly and honestly. Your booking secures a very limited place, so is non-refundable - if you can’t make it, you can send a friend or colleague instead. If at the end of any of our workshops you haven't enjoyed yourself and don’t believe that it has helped you to achieve what it set out to, we will gladly refund you 100% of the price you paid.


We are actively trying to help the environment, so all workshop confirmations and supporting information will be emailed to you, including a reminder the week before the workshop with details and directions to the farm.
