Apple History & Trivia

In ancient Rome & medieval Europe, apples were an emblem of social status; they were often displayed on banquet tables as a boastful centerpiece. 

 

Buy Local Consumers are noticing how many “food miles” their food has traveled before landing in their grocery store. This movement is already prevalent in Europe.  Linked to this “buy local” trend is a drive to support environmental sustainability. Proponents believe that the fewer the food miles traveled, the less carbon-based energy consumed. 

 

Apple Cider Safety Our cider is made from 1st quality apples and not windfall or any apple that has touched the ground.  This is important because E.coli bacteria comes from apples that have fallen and may have come in contact with animal droppings. Also, first quality apples taste better and last longer.   Research has shown that UV filtering is as effective as pasteurizing cider but does not destroy the healthful digestive enzymes. Our cider is UV filtered which tastes better, is better for you and can be used for wine making.
