Apple-Palooza 2011

I’m sure many of you have heard that we were planning an ‘Old Fashioned Cider Pressing Day’ on October 30th. Well – this event has blossomed into much more…here’s a summary of what will be happening on Sunday, October 30th.

pressOld-Fashioned Cider Pressing Demo:
“Come Squeeze Our Apples”

Jared will be demonstrating how we used to press our apples to make cider with an old fashioned wood cider press. These demo’s will take place at 10:30am, 12:30pm and 2:30pm and will take approximately 30 to 45 minutes.

Apple Pie Baking Contest


We are hosting our very first apple pie baking contest. Each person that brings a pie to be judged will go home with a free 1/2 peck of Baker’s Mix Apples (to go towards future pies of course…). There will also be a spectacular grand prize for the winner…and I’ll be sure to update you all when I figure out exactly what that will be…

If you ware interested in baking a pie for the contest please send me an email: {lapaceksorchard at gmail dot com} with your name and pie baking story (if you have one – if not , no worries). Plan on arriving at the orchard by 12:45pm with your pie. Pie viewing and photo’s will take place at 1:00pm and judging will start at 1:30pm.

More details on prizes, judges, criteria to come – watch for a blog post soon!

Rock ‘N’ Wool Acres: A Wisconsin Winery – How & Why


At 11:30, our cousin, Shaun Lapacek, will be giving a talk about the winery he and his father are building in Poynette – Rock N Wool Acres. His talk will focus on three things:

  1. Starting a winery
  2. Creating a vineyard
  3. Why a winery in Wisconsin?

carboy Hard Apple Cider Booth

Our good friend Jay Walters will have a booth set up from 11am - 2pm to talk about and answer all your questions on how to make hard cider. Jay has been doing this for years and we’ve helped enjoy many of his products – this guy knows what he’s talking about.

The Glitter Workshop

feathres Some of you may remember the spectacular ‘Craft-Apple-Ar’ that helped our season get off to a fantastic start. My friend, Naomi of The Glitterworkshop, is the reason this fabulous event happened and she’ll be joining us again at the orchard for this fun day. Naomi will be there putting in hair feathers for fun (or perhaps, a good prop for a costume…) and have some fun Halloween/Autumn hand made goods for sale as well!

All of this fun will be happening on October 30th so don’t miss out on all the ‘Apple-Palooza’ Fun!

We just returned from Apple-Palooza...my son and his friends had a blast! They played and fed all the animals...pressed apple cider...and tried to guess whom would win the apple pie bake off. Thank you so much for the delicious cider doughnuts. We are heating up the cider we bought and sharing with the rest of the family at home. Many thanks for a wonderful afternoon spent at your orchard (-:
