Apple pressing experiences at Lemons Farm
Join us at Lemons Farm throughout September and October to spend a day in our private orchard pressing your own juice and learning the traditional Devon art of cider production. Bask in the view overlooking the beautiful Taw Valley and take all your produce home to enjoy over the year!
Guests will be welcomed to Lemons Farm and taken up to our private orchard to be given a briefing on the apples, cider production and the local area.
Guests will be able to select from number of apple varieties, pick, pulp, press and then pasteurise the apples for juice or pack away for cider production and take all their produce home with them. Guests will be treated to a ploughman's lunch (morning experiences) or afternoon tea (afternoon experiences).
Guests will be able to enjoy a ploughman's lunch or afternoon tea with locally sourced ingredients while enjoying a glass of their own freshly pressed juice. All this while looking out over the beautiful Taw Valley towards Exmoor.
The experience lasts three hours (around two hours to press and sample and then an hour for lunch/tea). Guests will be able to take home all the juice they are able to press during this time, either in their own bottles or in ours. There will be tea and coffee making facilities on site and guests will also be able to swill down their own freshly pressed juice.
