Copella is made from handpicked apples
at Boxford Farm, Suffolk.
Our apple pickers select and choose each apple carefully by hand. The apples are delicately selected for their size, shape, colour and maturity. Apples picked at the optimum time ensure that Copella is made from the tastiest and sweetest apples.
Our specialist apple experts know each delicious apple variety
by heart and only allow a perfect picking for each blend.
Once the apples have been picked, they are placed gently in crates by variety and date and held in chilled storage until they are pressed.
In general, later harvest apples store better than early harvest apples, so apples picked October - early November will store well and sustain the supply of Copella through the following seasons.
