Press your own apples Cornwall

Make your own apple juice and cyder

Thousands of community apples have been pressed this year and now the facility is closed ahead of Christmas.  It will be running again during pressing season 2020. 

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.

Transport home grown 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 home brew.

Whether you are a novice or a fully fledged cider maker, nothing beats the experience of pressing your own grown apples at Healeys Cornish Cyder Farm.   Whilst you’re here you can find out more about what goes into making amazing cyders on a cyder making tour and a tractor ride to see how our own 20 acres of beautiful orchards compare.  Make the most of the free tutored tastings in our farm shop to help create your own perfect pints at home.

After all the pressing action, tuck into a famous Healeys homemade afternoon or cream tea or work up an appetite for lunch in The Old Bottlery Restaurant accompanied by a Healeys pint made here on the farm.

*With a donation in the visitor centre to Healeys chosen charity, Healeys Charitable Trust Fund. Activity is available at select times of the year, primarily during apple harvest.

If you have a large amount of apples to press, we advise calling the farm shop beforehand to check availability: 01872 573356
