Fresh Cider is excellent for freezing.

Many of our customers freeze a gallon or two of cider at the end of the season, to enjoy later in the year. Whether sipping hot cider on a cold winter day, or cooling off with ice cold cider next summer, now is the time to put some in your freezer.  Simply pour off 1″ to allow room for expansion. We sell empty quart and pint containers if you want to add a variety of sizes to your freezer.  We are taking cider order until December 15 – reserve yours today.
