Duskin Apple Juice is a small, family business run by Andrew Helbling and his daughter Susan which emerged from a diversification of the family farm. Back in the seventies, the farm had many delicious apples which werebeing turned down by the supermarkets for not being 'perfect'; these were fed to our sheep to stop them going to waste. The sheep were, of course, delighted but Andrew would sit on the tractor and wonder why they got all the luck. What else could we do with all this lovely produce that the supermarkets so foolishly rejected? So, ingenuity and welding irons were put to good use and the first apple press emerged. This was back in the 1980s, when the high tech, 'loads'a'money' society was in full swing. Luckily, there were also a number of small farm shops and health food stores who were more than happy to take something so unusual for the time.
