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 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.

  2. I love apple cider. It’s one of my all-time favourite things, particularly during Summer. I’ve never seen any sort of cider sold in a bag before! Very very cool. Thanks for showing us the inner workings of the cidery!
