Orchard Management

Ever have fresh apple cider right out of the press on a crisp fall afternoon? Nothing like it. The aroma of fresh apples…the tang of fresh cider…it’s something special for sure.

Cider, apple pie, apple crisp and just fresh apples off the tree are just a few of the reasons we keep an orchard.

Most of all, we enjoy having friends and family here to make cider every fall. The press we have is a Jaffrey Manufacturing model 8400. It’s an excellent product and the new owners of the company provide outstanding product support…

…and as a hand-crank model it’s a good addition to our fall exercise program!
