Tony's Apple Cider - We start pressing cider in October
say it's the best cider they have ever had. We make our cider using
most of the 35 varieties of apples we grow. Each variety adds its
own flavor to to the blend: aromatic (from Macoun and Cortland),
high-sugar (Delicious, Gala and Fuji), high-acid (Greening and certain
Macintosh), and mildly subacidic (Ginger Gold and Empire).
Grampa Tony's Apple Cider has a full old-fashioned
taste. To retain the flavor we leave it unpasteurized. For safety,
we use only apples harvested from the tree, never from the ground.
Then they are thoroughly brushed and power-washed and the product is constantly tested.
The result is a flavor that is unbeatable.
Some folks freeze our cider, so they can have it all year long.
Some ship frozen cider to their friends and relatives who live in
other parts of the country where they can't get great cider. If
you haven't tried some yet - you really don't know what you are
