Fruit picked?
Let's get juicing!

Welcome to Brendon Orchards Cooperative

Hire Our Juicing Kit

We have two full apple press kits available to hire out locally. They are fully mobile and fit in the back of an ordinary car. The complete jucing kits are available for just £30 per day (per kit). For larger scale juicing projects we have a 90litre hydropress available. We can also supply 75cl bottles with caps for 75p each on a sale/return basis - please let us know your requirements.

The mills work on mains electric and the presses run off mains water pressure. They are incredibly easy to use, very efficient and hygienic. But don't just take our word for it, come along to one of the Community Juicing events for a spot of practise and see it in action.

Juicing kits will be available to collect the evening before your hire day, and will normally need to be returned, fully cleaned, the following evening. Times for collection and return will be confirmed with our Apple Press Manager when you book your hire date. Collect from The Greenhouse which is the base of our operation in central Wiveliscombe.

To hire an apple press kit please send an email with your preferred hire date including a completed (but not signed) Loan Agreement Form. If you have not previously been a member of Brendon Orchards you will also need to complete a Membership Form - membership costs £5 and is annually renewable.

Please check calendar below for availability. For further information please check FAQs page.

Speidel Mill

Fruit is sliced and pulverised by a three part stainless steel blade system, and is charged through the chute. Cut out switch inactivates mill if hopper is removed. Reversible, durable blades. Very easy to clean and maintain.
