First Day of School


Many of you have already met Cedi at the apple store but if you haven’t she’s the one pictured above.  Cedi had her very first day of school on Tuesday (4K) and it all went really well (only a few ‘Proud Mama’ tears from me).  If you’re by the store in the afternoons you’ll probably see our little helper as well.

The biggest change in our lives with school is that there has to be more of a schedule.  We need to get Cedi to her own bed before it gets too late and try not to interrupt things as much. 

When we make our apple cider the girls go to Frank and Diane’s for the night.  Grinding the apples into a pulp for pressing is really loud – too loud for little girls ears.  On top of that, our monitors do not reach tot he cider making room so it’s impossible for both of us to be working out there after the kids go to bed.  025

Making cider on Thursday nights works out well since the girls can have a sleepover at Grandma and Grandpa’s without a schedule to worry about (no school on Friday’s for 4K).  With that said, in the past if we ran low on cider we would sometimes press it on Wednesday nights.  We can’t do that anymore.  Our kids need some stability, even during apple season, so there may be some weeks that our cider supply is low on Wednesdays and Thursdays – like this week.  All I can do is guarantee that we will be making more on Thursday nights and we will do our very best to predict how much we will sell in the week so we don’t run out before the next pressing.

Thanks so much for your understanding and support as we continue to work at making our orchard a great experience for you and your family.


Cedi boarded the bus without a glance back.  I’m so proud of her but can’t believe how big she’s getting!
