Cider Mill

Apple Cider is fall’s sweetest harvest. Tree-ripened local apples 100% natural, unfiltered juice

NO added sugar, water, or preservatives.

We started with nothing more than a backyard cider press, barrels of Jonagold Apples, and a curiousity for what pressed apples would taste like. And, that is how the Abbotsford Applebarn Cider Mill came to be. Over two decades later, we are still growing, harvesting, and producing apple cider at our farm, only now we don’t use a hand-cranked machine. (Gets hard on the hands after a while )

Fresh, Cold-Pressed Apple Cider

What is Apple Cider?
Apple cider is fresh and unfiltered. Imagine taking fresh apples and cold-pressing them to juiced. It is a 100% natural, UV-treated juice that has no added sugar, water, or preservatives. It’s like biting into a fresh apple! Your kids will be asking for more!

How long does it stay fresh?
Since Apple cider is a fresh product, it must be refrigerated for up to two weeks. However, you can also freeze it and keep it for a year.

Small tip: since liquids expands when frozen, its best to drink a cup or two before freezing.

What is Unique about Applebarn Cider versus Store-Bought Apple Juice?
We have an estate cider mill, which means that our cider is made from a blend of our very own apples.

Pasteurized Cider

We take tree-ripened fruit, add no additives, and then use a treatment process, allowing us to create juice that is safe for drinking but doesn’t require using heat or diluting flavor. The glass bottles are pasteurized, and the plastic containers are UV Treated.

How long does it stay fresh?
Pasteurized bottles have a shelf life of at least one year.
