Cider Pressing, Thanksgiving Turkeys & Winter Markets
Cider Pressing Party This Saturday, November 6, we will host a casual cider pressing party at our home, 349 Tibet Rd Columbus OH 43202. Drop in between 2 and 4 p.m. to help make cider, have a taste or two, make apple rings, and play at the homestead.
We'll have a donation jar out for anyone who cares to contribute to the cost of the apples and the press.
