Apples to spare? Hate the waste? We’re collecting apples to make into West Oxford Apple Juice.
We collect apples from across West Oxford and deliver them to Rupert Griffin, of Oxford micro-enterprise Tiddly Pommes. He creates a pasturised blend, labelled especially for us.
Anyone donating apples will get first refusal on buying any juice produced for £2.50 a bottle (normal retail price £4.00 / bottle). The 20% we get from Tiddly Pommes for free will be donated to our friends at the Oxford Food Bank.
This will only work with a reasonable haul, so please tell your friends and neighbours – the more apples, the better!
When your apples are ripe, pick your apples (no windfalls please)
Email us to let us know you will be dropping them off, with the variety and rough weight, if either of those details are known
Read our guidelines here for how to drop the apples in a covid-appropriate manor on our website before you bring them to the drop-off point
Drop them off at our local collection site during one of our advertised slots – or we can collect if you have a big haul (get in touch to arrange)
We will deliver your apples to Tiddly Pommes, and let you know when the juice is ready
