Cider Pressing, Harvest Party in Granby at the Farmstand
Rain or Shine!
Family Friendly and Everyone Welcome!
Cider Pressing Starts at 10 am, Ploughman's Lunch 11am-2 pm, Pressing Until 4pm.
Come enjoy one last day at the farm pressing cider, eating homemade donuts and listening to some old-time music. We'll start the press at ten and you can pre-order seconds apples by the bushel from us.
In colonial-era New England, cider used to rule as the safer alternative to often-tainted water. Hard cider was the drink of choice, with ciderkin for the youngins. If you love fresh cider, or are intrigued, come learn how to make some. You can turn some into hard cider if you are so inclined. If you want to learn even more there's a great event later in the fall called Cider Days.
How to make your cider:
Order apples ahead, and Bring jugs.
You can order cider apples with us that we'll have at the farm for you. You can freeze any extra of the delicious cider you make for later enjoyment. As bees like cider too, they often come to visit while we are pressing. If you have any allergy to them, please bring medicine just in case.
Jugs will be available for sale at the farm also.
ORDER CIDER APPLES: 1 bushel apple seconds makes about 2-3 gallons. Order by Tuesday Sept 30. Order here in the form below.
