Peach Trees in Bloom

The peaches are blooming and on Sunday, Ann Marie spied the first peach of the new season, always a wonderful milestone. The apples are mainly in silver tip, with the earliest varieties moving to green tip and tight cluster. David transferring ciders to build a new batch. Kate and Sara crushing up ginger for Beehive. Pete doing maintenance on the bladder press before it gets put away for the season; the last remaining Pink Lady apples were crushed this week.

Peaches in bloom. A peek at the newest ‘tasting-room-only” batch, a cider with caramelized sweet potato that we call Beauregard. Colin whisking honey into cider for Beehive Ginger, a labor of love. Beehive Ginger is back in bottles now, and so is Mighty Hunter Hopped, just in time for Spring.
