DOES THE CIDER HAVE TO BE REFRIGERATED? Yes, refrigerate it when you get home. After that, it takes about two weeks for refrigerated cider to ferment. Fermented cider is not harmful to drink, but will definitely take on a vinegary taste.
DO YOU PASTEURIZE YOUR CIDER? We expose our cider in a thin film to intense UV light. For those looking to make homemade hard cider, our UV treated cider will still ferment.
ARE YOU ORGANIC? We utilize as many organic practices as possible; however, our wet springs are conducive to many fungal diseases that can only controlled by fungicides, which we use only when required by nature. We scout and trap for damaging insects such as codling moth( the classic worm in the apple), and target sprays only for those pests when they pose a significant economic loss, while conserving beneficial insects to the best of our ability.
HOW SHOULD I STORE MY APPLES? Always store apples in your refrigerator. Mist them with water occasionally or cover with a damp cloth.
HOW SHOULD I STORE MY PUMPKINS? Keep them dry and out of the heat; any surface that is moist will rot the pumpkin from the bottom up.
