We had a lot of groups of Vassar College Alumni and other members of the public show up during our Open House on June 13th which was held during Vassar College’s Reunion Weekend.  Photographs from the event have been posted to our Facebook page; you can check them out by clicking here.  A great day and a great event!

Cider Tasting 2014

Thank you to all who attended the second annual cider tasting!  Additionally, a big thank you to our volunteers, without which we could not have had such a successful event.  Check out photos from the event here.

Cider Mill Friends pressed their own cider one week earlier using local apples picked from Hudson Valley Research Lab and a 120-year-old hand-operated press.  Additional local cider donations were from Breezy Hill Orchard, Yankee Folly Cidery, and Half Time Beverage.  Cider tastings were provided in a commemorative tasting glass.   Roundabout Ramblers provided live music during the event, and Chocolate Mousse Catering donated tasty apple appetizers.

Thank you all!  See you next year!
