Jennifer Farmer brought her home-made cider press to the space tonight, along with apples from her house! Built with boards and plywood and an automotive jack, the rig cost less than $50. Fresh juice for all!!
Smashing the apples with a 2×4
Getting the apples leveled
The apples weren’t quite perfectly leveled, so the jack is a little off center.
The juice pooled in the pan, then drained through a hole into a hose, and into the jug.
The gurgles were music to our ears!
Pouring nature’s spoils!
