Animals Like Jack O Latterns

The hoggies like them.  So do the sheep.

The geese like them, and the chickens do too.

In addition to feeding jack o latterns to the critters, we did our fourth apple pressing session today.  This is the first time this year that we pressed traditional cider apples.  We press Kingston Black, Brown Snout, Yarlington Mill, Cox’s Orange Pippin, Spitzenberg, Breakwell, Tomm Putt, Ribston Pippin, Foxwhelp, Bulmers Norman, and Mettais apples.  The photo is of the Kingston Blacks and Brown Snouts being pressed.  Notice the deep rich color.  There is going to be some excellent cider this year!

    Woo Hoo! Sounds like you guys are going to be up to your eyeballs in cider 🙂 I love the heritage apple names. do you find that the cider from them has a stronger character?
