Cider Jugs2024 Cider Outlook:

Rebuilding and restoring our ability to press cider was the last phase of recovery after the fire at our barn in 2021. The barn itself was completed last year, and we were incredibly grateful for the first nearly normal season since 2020 even though cider was still on the horizon.

We have just completed the last steps required for full pressing operation, and we are testing the equipment with some small pressings of apples from last year. We are getting some cider at last! It is tasting good to us after the long period without, and it is exciting to see juice flowing again.

We are refining our production process this Spring, and we are hoping that if we have a reasonable crop this year we can be in full scale production again by late August.
