Kimpton Manor Apple Press

Frequently asked questions

At the press, we can create many different variations of juice. Although we specialise in exquisite apple juice the press can also turn pears into juice, strawberries, raspberries, any fruit without a stone will go into the belt press.

When we press your fruit juice we add just a few drops of Vitamin C to give your juice stability. This stops the brown oxidisation tint you get when you peel apples. Nothing else gets added.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How much juice will my apples make?
We cannot estimate how much juice your apples will produce. Each variety is different.

2. Do I have to give my label details before dropping off my fruit?
YES! Please provide label (or non-label) requests in writing using the Labelling Page email address. If we do not have a label choice on the day your juice is bottled unfortunately we will not be able to label your bottles.

3. When will you be pressing?
We will press on Mondays every day through to thursday.

4. Do we really get our own apple juice back?
YES! We go to great lengths to ensure it is only your apples juice you get back so Please name EACH container you leave very clearly!.

5. Can I have our containers that we leave the apples in back?
If you want your containers back they will be in the big black barn, opposite when you left your apples, so please take them when you return for the juice.  Probably best not to bring containers that you love, as we would worry that they might walk off! 

6. What is the smallest or largest quantities of apples you will press?
The smallest amount is a well filled wash basket. The largest.... a truck?!?

7. Where shall I find the juice when ready?

If you have left your email details we will e mail you with the quantity and cost when the juice is ready.  Best not to come before this as it might not be finished.  Most juice will be ready with in ten days, unless we are very busy.  You will find the juice boxed and labled in the large black barn on the left of the farm yard.  We try to leave it open so that you can collect when convinient.  The payment box is there to, so that you can slip a cheque in when collecting.  PLEASE do not pick up with out payment, as this messes up our books badly.

8. How do I pay?
Payment by cash or cheque (written to Kimpton Apple Press) can be posted into the white post box on the stage inside the big black barn.
