This year we will again have our cider press up and running! Robin and Andrew are our on-site cider smiths and experts in blending cider from our many apple varieties. Every batch is different, even if you use the same apples! It truly is a mixture of art and science. And this year – watch for cider blends using our own apples, strawberries, raspberries and blueberries! Check put facebook to see when we are pressing again.
NYS law requires producers to treat all cider made for resale. Heat pasteurization is one method. UV treatment also meets this requirement by using ultraviolet light instead of intense heat. This is the method we use. Cider tasting can be a fun pursuit like comparing gourmet coffees. Sample some for yourself! Cider slushies are a big hit with kids, and we have them all summer and fall. Don’t forget that our cider is 100% natural, has no preservatives, no added sugar, and contains fiber from the pectin in the apples. Stop by for a gallon and enjoy!
