Cider Pressing this Saturday.
Fresh sweet cider pressing starts with the 2012 harvest of New York State grown apples and goes through December 1. Watch cider being made the old-fashioned way in our 1856 water-powered Cider Mill.
Visit the Cider Gallery’s exhibit entitled “Power, Process & Popularity” where you can see the entire process. Chris Molloy, our cider production leader will demonstrate the tradition of cider making on the Mill’s Boomer and Boschert press made in Syracuse, NY.
Everyone is treated to a free sample after the tour. Pressing times vary due to sales demands but your best bet is from 11:00 until 3:00. When the press is not in action there is a video demonstration and interactive exhibits in the Mill´s Cider Gallery. Parking is free and admission is complimentary.
