Have an apple tree?
Harvest ripe firm apples for best results. Any variety will do. Juice yields will be lower on overripe apples. We will not press apples that are overly ripe, split, dirty or bruised. Apples must be clean and free of leaves, twigs, rot, mush or debris.

Please know an approximate weight for your apples, doesn't need to be exact since we will weigh them at pick up as well. 

Don’t have an apple tree?
That's okay. Apple cider is also available for purchase from Burwalde Juice Co.

Can I have juice from my apples only?
No unfortunately not. We have a continuous grinder and belt press, segregating small batches will not be possible.
