2013 was a banner year for apples in New England and even the old, long-neglected trees at the Thomson farm in Western Massachusetts got caught up in the frenzy.
A representative sample of the year’s crop, from an old Cortland tree.
Picking in a remnant of one of the farm’s old orchards, no ladder necessary.
One of many.
The grinder was a kid favorite. It ground up the apples into an oatmeal-like mush.
Here the mush went into the cider press.
Then the press squeezes out the cider.
The first three of more than 100 gallons.
A refreshing treat after a hard day’s work.
