Apples, Apples, Apples...

We have a wonderful crop this year. Our average harvest season lasts 80 days due to the large number of varieties that we grow. Our apples are kept fresh and crisp in cold storage rooms.

People say it's the best cider they have ever had. We make our cider using most of the 35 varieties of apples we grow. Each variety adds its own flavor to to the blend: aromatic (from Macoun and Cortland), high-sugar (Delicious, Gala and Fuji), high-acid (Greening and certain Macintosh), and mildly subacidic (Ginger Gold and Empire).

Grampa Tony's Apple Cider has a full old-fashioned taste. To retain the flavor we leave it unpasteurized. For safety, we use only apples harvested from the tree, never from the ground. Then they are thoroughly brushed and power-washed and the product is constantly tested.

The result is a flavor that is unbeatable. Some folks freeze our cider, so they can have it all year long. Some ship frozen cider to their friends and relatives who live in other parts of the country where they can't get great cider. If you haven't tried some yet - you really don't know what you are missing. Really.
