Apple Press Night

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!!

Getting ready

Getting the apples leveled

Big Squeeze!

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.

Sweet goodness

The gurgles were music to our ears!

tada apple juice

Ta da!

Pouring the bounty

Pouring nature’s spoils!
