We couldn’t have made it through this cider season without the help of our new grinder and press!
Back in August we had an official inauguration party.
We ate cupcakes…
drank (uncommon) cider…
and kissed babies…
Ceremonial Cider Press Launching
It only seemed appropriate to officially inaugurate the press by smashing a bottle of cider over it.
Which turned out to be just as scary and dangerous as you would expect… but fun!
Huge Shout Out to Samantha Porter
Our talented friend, Samantha Porter, researched, planned, sourced and built the grinder and press for us. We could not have done anything close to this amazing without her. Every time we press, we thank our lucky stars for Sam’s skills. That sounds corny, but I think I’ve mentioned how wonderful it is almost every time we use it. It has revolutionized our process! Plus, it just looks cool.

We will have a forthcoming blog post in our Making Cider section with more details after cider season is over!
