It's Cider Making Time at the Farm!

You may recall last October when I first blogged about making apple cider.  Last year’s apple harvest was unbelievable and to take advantage of so much abundance, we scrambled to find an apple press.  We located a manufacturer in Paola, Kansas called Happy Valley and they shipped us a double-tub cider mill and wine press called American Harvester.  This year’s apple crop is also amazing, although the fruit is on the small side, for some reason.  Still, the fresh-squeezed cider from fresh-picked apples is quite delicious!
