One of the most popular items of the fall harvest is apples. In New England, cider making is to autumn what maple sugaring is to spring. However, 19th-century farmers would not recognize the sweet cider we enjoy from farm stands today. Cider in the 1800s was not merely the apple juice, but was fermented “squeezings” from apples, which meant the cider would keep through the spring planting, summer heat, and into the harvesting of the next apple season. Throughout the day, our interpreters will be cooking and preserving this special fall fruit and operating the ox-powered Cider Mill.
