Visiting the Ol’ Cider Press

Here are pictures from our trip out to the Cider Press at Rolling Acres near St. Jacobs, Ontario.  It’s a 20 minute drive from our house and we’ve been there three times this fall.  You can read about our trip here .


The press is in the silver building on the left.

The pressed cider is sent to a barrel to be measured to determine cost.


Finally it is bagged if you wish, or sent to your bucket.
