Join us for a fall ride or just pick apples and help make fresh apple cider and enjoy a BBQ on Sunday, October 15 th . Come rain or shine.
BIKE - Bike rides start from Jeff & Donna's place, 181 Leavitt Road in Belmont, NH at 10am. We'll have Cue sheets for several routes. Plan to stay after the ride for a BBQ & press cider and pick apples to take home. Families are welcome (they can pick while you ride!).
PICK & PRESS & BBQ – If you just want to pick apples and make cider, come between 10am and 2pm. We'll take turns operating the hand crank cider press. We'll start up the grill and the music around 1PM. Bring an instrument or plan to sing along to blue grass music led by our wonderful neighbors. Bring plastic sacks for apples and a clean milk jug & cap for cider. If you're staying for the BBQ, bring a salad, dessert or a side dish and something to grill. Our apple varieties are Northern Spy, Delicious, Cortland & Macintosh . We don't spray, so don't expect “perfect” apples.
