Did you know that Crab Apples are the only apples native to this country? Have you ever heard of a Winter Banana or Sheepnose Apple? Did you know that Johnny Appleseed was a real person? Do you know how apple butter is made?

Join us at our 1750 Cheshire Barn to see how apples are processed into cider using an old-fashioned hand-operated apple press. Each autumn, check our Calendar for when cidering will be done on special event days and weekends.

Cidering for school groups is done on weekdays from the end of September to mid-November. The interactive presentation for school children includes information on the history, varieties and uses of apples as well as apple lore and games. When the work is finished there is, of course, a taste of some pasteurized cider.
