Sunday 12:00 PM Cider update

We are nearly out of the cider pressed this week after only an hour and we are so incredibly grateful for everyone's enthusiasm and support. We are hoping to be able to do one more pressing this spring and we will keep you posted. If you would like to provide your contact information at the following form, we can let you know directly if another pressing will occur:

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.

Open for one day on Sunday, March 10th

For people who are interested in a taste of this cider as Spring approaches we will have a limited number of half gallons available at the Apple Barn on Sunday March 10th from 11am to 4pm.

The cider sign will be up at the driveway and you can stop by. If we happen to run out during the day, we will post an update here.
