As the trees have ripened each variety has been pressed, bottled in half gallon jugs, labeled them appropriately and stored in the freezer. Now, with just a bit more planning and spreadsheet making to do, we’ll be ready to offer them for sale.baskets of apples

    I have such fond memories of living in the mountains of Virginia and going out to friends’ orchards in the fall to pick and press apples with my children. They were heirloom varieties I’ve never had since and (in our memories anyway) those apples made the best cider ever.

    I wish I could stop by for a taste of your cider!
