Visitors are invited to bring their surplus apples and pears to Croome, near Worcester, to be thrown into a giant crusher and turned into scrumptious juice to take home.

The three day event at the National Trust is a great way to use up those windfalls collected from the garden.

“We are delighted to be holding our apple pressing day and it’s such a great way to use up that unwanted fruit that many of us have lying around our gardens.” said Katherine Alker, Garden and Outdoors Manager.

With autumn here, many people have excess fruit which is often left to rot, so Croome’s juicing day is a great way to make use of them.

Visitors can watch as their fruit tumbles into a giant press with fresh juice coming out. Members of the garden team will also be on standby to give pruning advice for apple trees to visitors

There will also be a limited supply of apples to buy on the day from Croome’s orchard which features local and historic varieties such as Worcester Pearmain, Catshead, Ashmead’s Kernel and Pitmaston Pine Apple – some which date back to the eighteenth century.

The free event takes place on Saturday 14 to Monday 16 October, 11am-3pm, free. Don’t forget to bring a container to take home your delicious juice.
