Washing and 'milling' the apples

Washing and Milling the Apples IMG 0487

A glorious September day brings another hard graft shift at Four Acres Estate, getting ready to transform our apple harvest from the orchard into fabulous cider. A special thank you to Fred, Tracy and Judith and my little sister Mina (pictured above in a milling frenzy), whose help in washing and milling the apples was absolutely superb.

The pomace (used apple pulp) was later taken down to the vegetable patch; the courgettes are going to be fabulous this summer!
