About Little Stour Orchard
Little Stour Orchard was founded in 2011 by Sarah Bowers. Sarah owns an orchard in Kent where she and husband Michael grow 3 varieties of English apple. With an established orchard, Sarah and Michael wanted to get into the business of making their own apple juice, cider and vinegar.
Little Stour Orchard's Requirements
They approached Vigo with a requirement for a system which would allow them to mill and press at a high throughput. They also wanted to effectively pasteurise and bottle their product.
Vigo specified and supplied a juicing line including a Voran 100PS hydraulic press. A WA/LC wash mill with elevator was included in the specification to minimise labour. Equipment to pasteurise, fill and cap bottles was also specified.
Michael Bowers, said: “After much searching it was clear that Vigo were the company to go to for juicing equipment. Since it is important to us to use local companies where possible, the fact that they are also based in England was a massive plus. In speaking with them, I was impressed by how well they understood our requirements and were able to advise on what equipment would suit our scale and capacity. Vigo have always given us good advice and technical support when we have needed it. They have provided excellent customer aftercare which has been invaluable for us.”
