Community Cider Pressing

12:00 pm - 3:30 pm
5 Star Nursery & Orchard
853 Bay Road, Brooklin, Maine, 04616

Join the Blue Hill Co-op and 5 Star Nursery & Orchard on October 20th for our Annual Community Cider Pressing!

Turn local, RIPE, no spray apples into fresh pressed cider!

Bring between ¼-3 bushels of apples each. (No rotten/dropped apples please.) We’ll create a “community blend” using a commercial grade cider press to produce up to 3 gallons of cider per bushel.

Apples will be collected from 12-1pm. The amount of apples you
bring determines how much cider you take home. PLEASE WASH YOUR PICKED APPLES BEFORE ARRIVAL. Empty gallon containers will be available for purchase from 5-Star for $1 each. (Sorry, we are no longer allowing folks to bring your own containers.)

Please dress for the weather as you will be spending time outside.
We hope to see you there!

Pre-Registration is required.
Contact Beth Dickens, Ownership Coordinator for more info, or to reserve a spot. 374-2165
