Red Jacket Orchards, a family-owned fruit farm in New York’s Finger Lakes region, has been growing fruit and crafting juice for more than five decades. Their all-natural juice has received national recognition for quality: It’s cold-pressed fresh from whole fruit, with no additives or enzymes to “clarify” the juice, in a sustainable facility right on the orchard.

How does cold pressing work?

Red Jacket takes fresh fruit, chops it, and presses the cold mash into juice using a “rack and cloth” method. To maintain its freshness, the juice is kept cold, at 34 degrees, throughout the process, except for a critical flash pasteurization step: For a total of 20 seconds the juice is flash-heated to about 170 degrees to eliminate any possible bacteria, then immediately re-chilled to 34 degrees. It’s then bottled cold, shipped to market cold…and ready for you to enjoy.

The fresh flavor is like nothing else on the market; it’s as close to the raw fruit as you can get. Each juice is a good source of fiber, vitamin C, and antioxidants.
