Pressing Instructions
1. Book a 1/2 hour time slot by filling in your name and contact info on any blank time slots. 
*Each press (takes 1/2 hour) fits up to three 18 gallon totes of apples and squeezes more than 25 litres of juice. You may need to book additional pressing times if you have more than a press load of apples. If you have less than a press load, let us know and we'll look for someone else who has a half press load.

2. Store your fruit in a cool place until pressing day. Check through your boxes and compost any bad apples before pressing day.

3. Bring your apples, juice jugs, and a cash donation to the fruit pressing location (Happy Hills Farm, Lower Happy Valley Road) at the time you booked. We’ll do our best to stay on schedule. 

Cost: Suggested cash donation of $20. Proceeds will go to operate and maintain the press and to purchase a smaller manual fruit press that will be available in the future to borrow for free. If the suggested donation of $20 is a significant barrier to your participation, please feel free to pay what you can.

Location: Happy Hills Farm, Lower Happy Valley Road (Look for the sign).
