Our season generally begins, depending on climate, the second week in September and ends the last weekend in October
Orchard and store hours are 10:AM – 6PM seven days a week until the Monday after Columbus Day weekend. After Columbus Day weekend, the hours change to 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM Thursdays through Sundays.
We generally do not start pressing cider until the end of third week of September because the apples aren’t ready and the cider tends to be lighter and more bitter. We have received numerous compliments over the years on the quality of our cider. We do not use drops and all apples are inspected and washed prior to pressing. We press two types of cider, Blended and MacRaz (MacRaz is not available until the last week of September). The blended cider typically is a blend of 4 to 8 apple types depending on the time of season.
We are pretty easy going but have a few rules that we ask our customers to follow.
- No dogs or other domestic animals in Orchard at any time.
- No climbing trees. They don’t like it nor do we.
- No picking apples off the ground as it poses a risk for ecoli.
