Dorset Studio School have started the process of an Apple Juice Production. The project is to make apple juice which will be produced by the students and sold at Kingston Maurward and Dorset Studio School. This week saw the start where the students collected the apples from the Kingston Maurward Orchard. The process will consist of crushing, pressing and processing. We will keep you updated.
The apple production this week has been busy as students have been to the orchard and picked many apples, including Golden Delicious, Bramley etc. Students then enjoyed the milling process followed by the bottling of the finished product. They learnt about soil testing too. An opportunity was then given today where students got to purchase the bottled product at £2.50 a bottle. This will then be available after the half term for any parents wishing to purchase.
