The Coombs Farmers’ Institute is hosting their third annual apple pressing event at the Coombs Fairgrounds.
Action began Saturday, Oct. 5 and will continue Sunday, Oct. 6.
NEWS reporter Cloe Logan took in the festivities on Saturday (see video).
Sunday action runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., starting with a pancake breakfast hosted by the Arrowsmith Community Recreation Association.
Community members can bring apples and pears to be turned into juice (raw or pasteurized) using the juice press provided by Pressing Matter Mobile Juicer.
A minimum of 100 pounds of apples or pears are required per pressing. The CFI recommends getting together with neighbours and friends to pool resources.
