On this Saturday and Sunday or as long as our supply lasts, we have a very special blend of apple cider for filling your carboy to make hard cider. $50 to fill a 5 gallon carboy. The blend often includes 20 of our favorite apple varieties, both popular and heirloom. We sell glass carboys, yeast, fermentation locks and stoppers... anything and everything you could want to get started.Bryan from Citizen Cider will be here pouring their own awesome hard cider and answering questions about cider recipes, along with our own "Mr Carboy" himself giving expert information on all the many facets of hard cider making.
Throughout the Season...
"Pick For Your Neighbor"
Vermont Foodbank & the Agency of Agriculture encourage customers to pick apples, pay for them, & leave them here. Then, the Foodbank picks them up and distributes them so that our neighbors get fresh, local food. Thanks so much for joining us in this important program to help out our neighbors!
"Apples to iPads".. One wooden apple will be hidden out in the apple trees, and if you can be the lucky one to find it, you can bring it in to be exchanged for an iPad!!
Burlington and Shelburne Farmers Markets
On Saturdays, please stop by the Burlington or Shelburne markets to purchase apple cider, cider doughnuts and more.
