2011 Scrumping Project dates announced !!
This year’s events promises to be bigger and better than ever with added activities.
During the Picking day we hope to press, bottle and pasteurize some of the juice so attendees will be able to take a bottle of fresh apple Juice away with them on the day. Refreshments will also be provided.
More details to follow during the next couple of weeks so keep checking the blog.

Pressing/Apple day Grimsbury farm

Bring your own apples – or those you got from friends/
neighbours back gardens (asking first!). Have them pressed
by the Scrumping Project and take away a bottle of your own
apple juice! Or leave your apples for the Scrumping Project to
make into cider. Either way, it’ll be a good day out. There is no
limit on numbers to join in the apple peeling and pressing.
