The First Cider Press of the Season

007Last night, Jared and I (and Frank) did the first cider press of the season. We pressed 40 bushels of apples and made 138 gallons of fresh, unpreserved, unpastuerized, tasty apple cider. 004 Here’s a picture of the crushed up apples dripping from the clothes…this is before we even added hydraulic pressure to them. 013The crushed apples are now being pressed to get the maximum amount of juice out. 008 A picture of the apple cider mixing their flavors together in the bulk tank. 011 One of my jobs…label and fill the apple cider jugs. 016 Next we put a cap on the jug. 018 The cider is loaded into crates and then brought to the Bohling Road Orchard to be store in the cooler.

Make sure to stop by and get yours soon!
