What an amazing turnout for our annual Apple Day celebrations. It was a great family event with lots of happy, smiling faces.
The sun shone and everyone had such fun joining in apple scratting, juice pressing and a tour of our new orchard. Plus the Treraven Farm pigs enjoyed the leftovers!

We had such fun and made vast quantities of apple juice for everyone to take home.

Camel CSA’s third annual Apple Day was our best ever – in spite of the Cornish mizzle. All ages pitched in to chop, crush and press around 90 litres of apple juice to share among everyone who took part.
Our team didn’t have the time or energy to press the entire mountain of fruit before the equipment had to go back to our friends at Chyan Community Field.
So we came to an agreement with the St Mabyn “Cider Boys” (don’t ask!) and we now have an extra 50 litres or so of delicious juice to share out.

The apples are harvested and the apple press is on its way.
We’re all looking forward to our third annual Cornish Apple Day on Sunday when we’ll be producing masses of delicious fresh apple juice to share.
If you can bring any apples and a plastic juice container with you, all the better!

The apples are picked. We’re all set for Camel CSA’s annual apple juicing day this Sunday 9 October at our veg-growing site site in north Cornwall.
Now the fun part – everyone is welcome to come along and share our bountiful harvest. Juicing will go ahead on Sunday morning between 10am and 1pm on our community plot at St Kew Highway near Wadebridge.
It means we’re no longer having to beg and borrow small, hand-operated presses and should make the whole operation much quicker and easier.
But it does mean we’ll need a lot of apples!
SO… we could aways use more. If you have any apples to share, or know anyone else with some to spare, please do let us know and arrange to get the fruit to us on the day.
AND…please can you all start putting aside containers for the juice. Most effective are 1-litre plastic milk containers, so the juice can be stored at home in the fridge for 48 hours or frozen. But please ensure they’re thoroughly cleaned out first!
A very enthusiastic bunch of families with young children harvested a vast number of apples in our adopted old farm orchard at St Mabyn. We managed to get the task done last Sunday – the final day of our short Indian summer.
Thanks a bunch to our apple picking and tree climbing team – Bob, Bridget, Cath, Charlotte, Dan, Danny, Gav, Geraint, Jane, Jenny, Kate, Kim, Mike S and junior members Arwen, Daisy, Finn, Hollie, Max and Seren.

We’re all set for our annual apple juicing event. The apples are picked and the presses prepared.
Everyone will be able to join in washing, cutting up, crushing and pressing the apples. You’ll also have the opportunity to taste the different varieties.
In exchange for your efforts you’ll be rewarded with a fair share of the juice, either to drink on the spot or take away with you. Please bring a plastic container if you intend to take some home, as it freezes well.
It promises to be another warm, sunny Cornish autumn day, so do call by.

Nearly 40 people came to our annual apple juicing event on our site at St Kew Highway in north Cornwall.
Everyone pitched in and helped with washing, cutting, crushing and pressing the apples. It was a big effort and we managed to produce nearly a litre of juice for every man, woman and child.
Many thanks to the kind folk who loaned us their apple crushers and presses and to those who donated vast quantities of apples from their gardens and orchards.
Our press gang on this beautiful autumn day were Aimee, Antonina, Brooke, Carla, Cat, Charlotte, Cheryl, Chris, Danny, David, Finn, Frances, Frank, Gavin, Jane I, Jane M, Jenny, Jeremy, Judy, Keira, Kitty, Lani, Leonie, Lily, Mark M, Mark N, Mike, Paul, Peter G, Peter M, Robyn, Ros, Sammy, Seth, Shayne, Sue, Teresa and Tom.
