    Week 4 ’17 Orchard Cider Year

    January 23 OUTDOORS: Down in the summer pick-your-own field, the invisible star of Jeff’s 2017 raspberry pruning is: a new hip!  Which works way better than the worn-out one. Otherwise not much is different except he got into the raspberries a month earlier than last year, and also clouds not sunshine set the palette of […]

    Week 38, Orchard Cider Year

    September 22, INDOORS: It’s hard to photograph Wanda because she moves so fast but Brenda caught her at each end of a siphon hose, racking barrel batches into a cube tank.  She seems to have noticed the camera.  BTW that word “ACID” looks kind of sinister but really it means “wicked acidic juice for balancing […]

    Week 30, Orchard Cider Year

    OUTDOORS: Updates! Top right, John & Brown are replacing those battered white temporary mouse-guards, (rapidly wrapped round the newly planted trees back in May, top left) with dug-in black mesh for the long run.  As usual, John & Brown got here from Jamaica in time to kick up the pace of work as everything grows.  […]

    Week 6: Orchard Cider Year

    February 10  INDOORS: Look! Nicole LeGrand Leibon, aka Her Sensory Amazingness, home from the West Coast after teaching sensory analysis to hordes of attendees after #CiderCon!  It’s hard hard work helping people’s minds to separate, isolate and name the many (& changing) strands of aroma, flavor and texture  woven into a sensory “experience.” (Also exhausting […]

    See you at NYC Wine Riot 2013?

    Well, you kind of knew that ‘cider’ is the fermented juice of apples the way ‘wine’ is the fermented juice of grapes, right? So you get why for years we’ve poured FH Ciders at big wine shows. The next one is the 2013 New York City Wine Riot, Friday and Saturday September 20th-21st in the […]

    New York and New Jersey, here we come!

    Another week at Poverty Lane Orchards and Farnum Hill Ciders is concluding in a flurry of work. I have just the smallest sense of what it means to move an army — as we’re deploying three people in three different locations Monday and Tuesday of next week.  We’ll be working in New Jersey with Hunterdon, […]
