Laughing Apple Farm Juice Label

Apple Juice

Available: All year long

We press our apples (and some pears) into juice that is 100% pure. We grow a mixture of heritage apples (Gravenstein, Grimes Golden, Golden Russet, Baldwin, Wealthy, McIntosh, Cox Orange Pippin) and some new varieties too (Jonagold, Gala, Fuji). We press a mixture of apples so each pressing is different, depending on what is ripe. In 2006 we installed an ultra-violet pasteurizer in our pressing operation. This unit allows the juice to flow past a source of ultra violet light so that any pathogens are destroyed without altering the juice (it is not heated). (Here is a link for more information about the UV Pasteurizer)

Although we now UV pasteurize our juice, we still follow the approved Code of Practice for un-pasteurized juice set out by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. We are periodically inspected by the CFIA. The water that we use in pressing comes from a 400 ft. drilled well on our property and we have it tested every year before pressing season. We have a commercial stainless steel belt press and we sort and wash our apples before they are mashed and pressed. We have one filter stage after the juice is pressed, but we do not filter the finer pulp. We bottle the juice and then freeze it immediately. All our bottles are marked on the caps with the date of pressing. We find that the juice will keep for at least 2 weeks refrigerated.

We sell our juice at the two farmer's markets on Salt Spring Island (Saturday Market in the Park, and Tuesday Market) and at Salt Spring Natureworks. Juice is always available at the farm by calling us.
