Wildsight staff and volunteers will be on hand to show people how to use the press.  Just pick apples from your, a neighbour’s or a tree on public property  -Wilsight has ladders, fruit pickers & bags to help you with this too – details at  Bring your apples to the fair and walk out shortly after with your juice. Apples should be washed and people also need to bring containers for their juice.  The press will be set up outside near the fence so people can pass their apples over the fence and then enter through the regular Community Fair entrance.
