Calling all apple cider lovers!

We have 3L boxes of 100% Organic Okanagan Apple Juice ready for purchase.
100% Okanagan Organic Apple Apples were harvested at an organic orchard in Summerland, BC by our incredible volunteers. This juice was pressed and pasteurized and boxed just for you! All proceeds made though this fundraiser will go directly back to the charitable operations of the Okanagan Fruit Tree Project Society.

- Juice is best stored unopened for up to one year.
- Refrigerate once opened. Juice is best consumed within one month after opening.
- This is REAL apple juice! Give it a shake before you pour yourself a glass. Then enjoy!
So what’s this apple cider all about?
Each year we host our Great Apple Harvest, an incredibly fun and rewarding weekend for the Okanagan Fruit Tree Project Society. Over a couple of days, we harvest as many apples as we can to make apple juice for our annual fundraiser.
This year we were very fortunate to partner with an organic orchard in Summerland who donated their apples. We had 83 of our incredible volunteers out over 2 days to hand-pick Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, some Spartan and Gala apples. We then pressed these gorgeous apples into apple juice.
100% Organic. Okanagan. Delicious. Supporting community.
What’s so wonderful about this weekend is that everyone involved benefits in some amazing ways. The orchardist gets a tax receipt to support their business. 4000 additional pounds of fresh apples were harvested and delivered to schools and non-profits throughout the Okanagan. Our volunteers were able to take part in a super fun weekend of apple picking – fresh air, exercise, and building community – and take home apples for themselves to eat, cook and preserve! And we are now able to raise funds to continue the meaningful work we do next season.
Your donation helps us reduce food waste and alleviate hunger in our community. It helps us support schools and non-profits who need produce donations for their food programs. It helps us honour and celebrate our local food producers. It provides an opportunity for community members like you to connect with the land, and learn about how our food is grown. It’s a win-win-win-win-win. FIVE WINS!!!!!
