Week 47, Orchard Cider Year


ocy47-outNovember 29, OUTDOORS: November is the cloudiest, darkest month around here. But pearl-diamond hybrids hang all over the orchards. Trees move quietly into full dormancy in the next several weeks.
We’re starting to beg out loud for a solidly cold snowy winter that lasts till March. And a slow spring.



ocy47-inNovember 29, INDOORS: Quiet outside but rackety in the cider room while Jeff, Wanda, Ryan and Jacques move 600 gallons of finished cider into its final containers. They’re driving a  jazzy clink-chicka-clink-chicka-ssssss-chicka-bump that beats the beats from Pandora.
