Transform your home grown fruit into apple juice and cyder with our free to use* apple mill and press at Healeys Cornish Cyder Farm during harvest season.
Our mill and press facilities offer those with an abundance of apples from their orchards or gardens the opportunity to press their own apples on a working Cornish cyder farm.
This activity requires an annual pass, if you already have an annual pass, please reserve your free return entry via the member's area. If you do not have an annual pass, please book through the non-member area.
Transport homegrown apples to the heart of the farm in the courtyard. Here, the easy-to-use equipment with information boards can be used to make up to 18 litres of juice in 30 minutes. Containers with cider-making kits are available to purchase from our farm shop to craft up to 30 pints of homebrew.
Whether you are a novice or a fully-fledged cidermaker, nothing beats the experience of pressing your own grown apples at Healeys Cornish Cyder Farm. Whilst you’re here you can enjoy a self-guided tour of our cyder museum and learn about cyder making through the ages! You can also explore our underground cellars and Cornwall's oldest distillery! Make the most of the free tutored tastings in our farm shop and cellars to help create your own perfect pints at home.
After all the pressing action, head upstairs to the Rattler Bar, complete with self-serve cyder wall or work up an appetite for lunch in The Old Bottlery Restaurant accompanied by a Healeys pint made here on the farm.
The equipment is only available to customers aged 16 or over *with a cash donation in the visitor centre to Healeys' chosen charity, Healeys Charitable Trust Fund. The average donation from previous years is £5 per pressing and has helped us raise hundreds of pounds for great causes. This activity is available at select times of the year, primarily during apple harvest. Customers will need to bring their own apples - these are currently not provided.
In order to comply with social distancing guidelines, we can only allow bookings of up to 6 visitors per session. We have also extended sessions from 60 minutes to 90 minutes, to give visitors enough time to clean down the equipment after your use. Please note that if you do not arrive on time, your pressing time will be reduced in order to allow you to have a suitable amount of time to complete your clean down. Visitors using the press will also be given disposable gloves upon arrival.
