They have a lovely farm high atop a hilltop, and there we all gathered to press heirloom apples from their orchard.
The apples had been picked and delivered by the cartload to the pressing area.
Then they were moved into huge, galvanized tubs and given a fresh bath.
Then they moved on to one of the two presses...a motor-driven press or a hand-crank press.
Liquid gold deliciousness!
Favorite photo of the day! Photo credits to Colette.
So blessed by the generosity of our friends! We came home with four jugs of fresh-pressed cider...one for now, and three for the freezer.
Sunflowers in full bloom by the barn?...just another sign that the seasons are changing!
