Working the apple press.

It’s apple picking season and this weekend Wildsight is setting up their apple press at the Kimberley Community Fair to help you turn your harvest into yummy, old-fashioned apple juice.  The press will be available all day Saturday and Sunday during the regular Community Fair hours –that’s Saturday 10am to 6pm and Sunday 11am-5pm. 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 www.wildsight.ca.  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.
