After years of working with food businesses, restaurants and farms, we asked ourselves – why can’t we find a way to work closer with the sustainable local produce that is on our doorstep, in a way that restores our biodiversity and allows everyone to have an impact and make a difference?
When we learnt about the decline of heritage apple varieties in Britain, their variations in flavour, rich historical and cultural significance and even their peculiar names we leapt straight in.
We discovered that this was part of a wider problem of broken supply chains, the decline of biodiverse habitats and the importance of traditional orchards within a sustainable farming system.
Sustainable apple juices for different times.
Wild and traditional orchards are in decline around the country.
At Wildpress we made it our mission to find them.
To preserve the lesser-known, heritage fruit varieties that grow there.
By supporting the orchards we also protect their wildlife and biodiversity.
It was from a desire to address these issues in the UK and celebrate these apples and wonderful local produce that Wildpress was borne. We partner with orchards around the country to capture and preserve the seasons harvest with a ‘no-rules’ approach to picking, pressing and blending.
Each bottle is full of individuality and character, each press is naturally inconsistent from the next and every bottle promotes regenerative agriculture which is protecting habitats for native wildlife to recover and thrive. Find out more about our mission at wildpressjuice.com
