Turn your surplus fruit into delicious juice
Urban Harvest is a social enterprise that finds and harvests surplus fruit growing in the city of Birmingham from back gardens and public land. We turn the fruit into delicious Urban Harvest fruit juice, pickles, preserves and dried fruit. Every year tonnes of urban fruit goes to waste as people are either unable to pick it, can't deal with the quantity or simply don’t know what to do with the fruit. Urban Harvest provides a solution to this problem and has a positive environmental impact by using fruit with almost zero food miles that would otherwise go to waste.
Birmingham residents with fruit trees including apples, pears, plums, cherries and damsons can become members of the project paying for the service of having their fruit picked by our team and turned into fruit juice. The fruit juice is then bottled and returned to members. Members can also get advice on caring for their tree including tree pruning and care and are able to attend an annual Apple Day celebration event in October. Any juice not given back to members is sold at farmers markets and through local outlets.
Our 100% Brummie apple juice is now on sale and we have a special web offer available- a box of 12 bottles (750ml each) for just £30 including free delivery in the Birmingham area, this gives you 2 free bottles and you dont even have to leave your house to buy them!

We also work with Birmingham based groups and individuals to harvest the fruit during the season (Sept-Nov). Urban Harvest is able to offer work experience to local people and has a focus on targeting disadvantaged groups in the city. Harvesting fruit together is great fun and there are lots of reasons to get involved, and all volunteers are given fresh fruit at the end of each session.
