"This sustainable family farm has been around for six generations and possesses 83 kinds of heirloom apples. We tasted several of the ciders including Macintosh, fresh, tart cider with lemon and pineapple hints; Gravenstein leans towards floral with apricot, orange and natural wood notes; and 1876 Heirloom, which comes across strong with crisp ripe apple and notes of stone fruit and caramel. These ciders are great paired with food, or on their own." Read more of Anita's Winter Fancy Food Show discoveries here.
