1 – 2 PM
RABBIT HILL FARM
148 BARBOUR FARM ROAD
The Deer Isle Cider Company has maintained the Barbour Farm Orchard in Stonington since 2008, harvesting and producing cider for wine and juice every year. In 2017, the company harvested over 60 bushels of apples from Deer Isle, Stonington, and Sedgewick trees. The fruit was stored, sweated, sorted, and washed at Rabbit Hill and then transported to Sewall Orchard in Lincolnville for pressing. In 2018, apples will be pressed at Rabbit Hill. In this workshop, you will learn how to build a hydraulic cider press for home use. Plans and construction information will be available.
