Friday musings, and a busy cider week


This week was pretty crazy at the orchard with temperature swings, bottling challenges, and an outage of SemiDry Cider. But the week ended with a beautiful spring day — sunny, warm and windy — and I started thinking about what makes Poverty Lane/Farnum Hill wonderful.

One of the pleasures of working in a small company is that we all (sort of) get to do some cool things that we are good at and enjoy — and I’d like to take just a few moments to sing the praises of Brenda, our resident photographer, office manager, and overall sorter-outer.

Brenda’s pictures are all over our website — but there’s so much more. She encouraged us to toast the birthday of West Coast cider fan Old Timey Dave with our new Summer Cider, and she and Jess rescued some baby squirrels, feeding them spoonfuls of peanut butter and a stray apple or two from last year’s harvest. She also managed to find time to photograph our arriving bees and the lovely spring day. Those photos are on our Facebook page if you want to take a look.

Thanks, Brenda.
