Participants need to bring their own apples and containers to store the cider. It takes approximately five pounds of apples to make a half gallon of cider. Visitors who plan to press a bushel of apples (42-48 lbs.) should call ahead to schedule a pressing time.
The event will also feature pioneer crafts and games for children.
