Roos Juice coming soon after ‘bumper year’ for apples

Members of the Roos Woodland Group have been out in force this week picking apples to make their popular Roos Juice.

Apples were collected from their own trees planted 10 years ago as well as many donated by villagers in Roos, Tunstall and Halsham. Varieties include Dog Snout, Hornsea Herring, Dr Kidd’s Orange Red, St Edmund’s Pippin, Katy and Fiesta, as well as the well-known Bramley.

The apples are processed, pasteurised and bottled by Side Oven Bakery at Foston on the Wolds, near Driffield, and Roos Juice will go on sale from the end of October.

Madge Moore, chairman of the Roos Woodland Group, said: “It’s been a bumper year for apples and it’s great that our own trees are now contributing to the juice. However, we couldn’t make this great product without numerous generous donations and our great band of volunteers who go out and pick the apples.”

To buy the juice, contact Madge on 07951 153238 or [email protected].

Alternatively, call into the Roos Village Store, Halsham Waterside or Melbourne Butchers, Roos, towards the end of October.
