Crop Report: Fresh Pressed Apple Cider

September 11, 2020

Apple cider season is here! We pressed our first batch yesterday, it's officially fall! Leaves are starting to fall here on the farm. These chilly mornings and evenings have us feeling those autumn vibes! 


A couple new apple varieties to look for in our Farm Market as we head into the weekend. Full list of apple varieties and farm fresh produce available (as supplies last) to follow.


Our first weekend of u-pick apples was a great success! We're looking forward to offering u-pick apples on weekends in September and October. Updates on varieties available for pick-your-own will be updated here weekly.


Our pumpkin patch will be opening up for u-pick in a couple weeks. U-pick pumpkins will be available seven days a week once it begins. Stay posted for details. 


We will be pressing cider twice a week until we close up for the season at the end of December. Our apple cider is small batch and unpasteurized. Due to its popularity, our cider tends to sell out by Sunday afternoon during the fall. Cider is first come first served. Please call ahead to ensure we have it before you make a special trip.


If you haven't had an Apple Cider Mimosa, you are seriously missing out. Here's a recipe from Love & Lemons for Apple Mimosas & Butternut Squash Egg Bake. Is it time for Sunday brunch yet??
