[Other] Apple Day at Acorn Bank, Sunday October 12th

The National Trust are planning another Apple Day on Sunday October 12th, 2014. This event has been very successful and well attended in previous years, with a large variety of things to see and do.
NCOG are once again planning to have a stand there where you can come and visit, press some apples, ask questions or just generally socialise. We will be showing off our new hydropress, which will be available for members to use at our members' pressing days on October 19th and November 8th.

[NCOG] Apple Pressing, October 19th, 2014

We are planning two events members' juicing events: on Sunday October 19th and Saturday November 8th. Both will be at Acorn Bank - at the barn near the watermill, not at the house. The October 19th event will start around mid-day. The purpose of these events is twofold:
(1) Members can bring along their own apples (or those they have scrumped) to juice and then take the juice away with them in suitable containers.
(2) Members of the cider-making subgroup (see News Item http://ncorchards.co.uk/cider-making-group-i165.news) can juice the apples and put them to ferment into cider. Novice cider-makers will receive help and guidance in doing this. The cider will be fermented at Acorn Bank - there will be subsequent events to rack and package it.
Non-members are welcome to join on the day, but please email first.
