Why Mobile Juicing?
Montezuma Orchard Restoration Project has worked persistently to rebuild the critical infrastructure needed to store and process the region’s previously wasted heritage fruit into a value-added product. As a result, small family farms that have not had reliable markets for their orchard crops in decades now can receive revenue from their fruit, incentivizing them to manage their orchards and plant new trees. These heritage orchards are irreplaceable building blocks for a restored economy based upon the legendary quality and diversity of Montezuma Valley Fruits.
Montezuma Orchard Restoration Project and the Apple Core Project have teamed up to offer Mobile Juicing Service to farmers, orchard owners, cider makers, and other local enterprises located in SW Colorado and the Four Corners Region. We offer both pasteurized and non pasteurized juicing service. Pasteurized juice is packaged into 5 liter juice boxes for retail sales. Non pasteurized juice is pressed directly into totes/tanks for hard cider production.
Pasteurized juice production for retail sales requires a facility approved for manufactured food processing (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point plan/HACCP). MORP currently has three approved sites including its own Orchard Hub location at 13751 Road 29, Dolores, Colorado. Please see price list below for processing apples and pears. We can also process other fruits including grapes and berries, and stone fruits such as peaches, cherries, apricots, and plums. Those prices are TBD so please contact us with questions: email@example.com
MORP can service a 100 mile radius from Dolores, Colorado. One hundred bushel minimum to travel to site. Pasteurized juice for retail sales requires a HACCP approved location. For distances greater than 100 miles or to discuss HACCP approval, please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
