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.

This activity requires admission to the farm. If you're already a member with free admission for 12 months, please log on to our booking area online and pre-book your slot.
