Transition Poole’s Abundance project, together with Cafe 34 in Poole High Street, held an apple pressing day outside the cafe in Poole High Street on 11 October 2014. Lots of interest from families, and kids ready to get stuck into scratting the apples, working the press and drinking the produce.
Everyone declared the juice to be delicious.
As last year, the flavours changed throughout the day. This year, the mix was mostly Bramley Apples, as there seems to have been many trees in Poole with a lack of crop.
We heard from passers by that other areas in North Dorset and Somerset had a great year, it is interesting how yield varies so much.
We did get a couple of downpours, and at one point the wind blew through very hard, but mostly the sun shone, and plenty of people stopped by for a chat and a taste.
