We began operating the free Community Apple Press at the Luther Burbank Farm in Sebastopol on August 4th. The press will be available for everyone to use just about every weekend through October.
There is nothing quite so satisfying as “putting food by”. Our Community Apple Press gives you the opportunity to “put apples by.” Bring your backyard apples, or apples purchased from one of our dedicated apple farmers, and press them into juice. It freezes very well. Or, of course, you can always ferment it into cider – a favorite drink of our founding fathers so I hear tell.
You can also help at the press as a volunteer – a deeply enjoyable and fun thing to do. It’s about people. You will meet and help members of our beautiful community from 6 to 80 press their apples into juice. .
We will be at the Gravenstein Apple Fair, which has been a summertime favorite fair sponsored and created by Farm Trails, for many decades.
Come and see us!
