Our Produce

Apple Juice and Cider

Made on site at the Back River Street cafe, The Old Saw Mill hosts its own apple juice, cider and cider vinegar making facilities…

Subject to apple supplies, The Old Saw Mill has its own apple pressing team of volunteers who work hard to provide the cafe, local markets and general public with fresh apple juice, cider and cider vinegar.

Freshly bottled, the apple pressing team utilise kind donations of surplus and windfall apples from the local community in order to produce the highly sought after fresh apple produce.

Donations are welcome if you have any apples that can be utilised!

If you would like to experience how we make our yummy apple produce and sample the goods then please feel free to pop in during the months of August, September and October and watch the magic!

We've Started Juicing!!

We’ve already been receiving plenty of apple donations from our wonderful community – keeping us extra busy. We’ve now started juicing and produced just over 400 bottles of apple juice so far, so if you’re stocks are running low come and get some!! But it doesn’t stop here so…
If you have apple trees in your garden and end up with spare apples, please don’t let them go to waste. Bring them along to the Old Saw Mill and we will turn them into our famous apple juice, cider and cider vinegar. All the proceeds from sales will be used to enable the OSM to remain open and continue to support our local community. Remember our dedicated team of volunteers take over 80 meals a week to people isolated in their homes. For many this is the only visit they get all week. Your apples really could make all the difference! Plus, if you bring enough, we will even give you a fresh bottle of juice to enjoy.
If you can’t get your apples to us but can bag them up, we’ll collect them or we can even pick them as well if that would help. There is also a drop off point for apples to be deposited at Astbury Mere, this is located between the visitor centre and the café marked with a ‘apples here please’ sign.
We usually juice the apples on a Monday and then transfer into bottles on Tuesday. There are up to 4 of us that do this, but not everyone can work every week so if anyone wants to help just call the number below or email info@theoldsawmill.org.
This year we are making an extra effort to collect the apples ourselves where people can’t drop them off at the café or they just have too many such as from a small orchard. This in particular would require more volunteers to help.
