Making Apple Cider

Making Apple Cider

There is an apple display in the Dairy Building at the museum. The Morton family donated an old cider press, which they used to make apple cider.  Rodney Cooney of Cooney Farms still makes cider each year, although now they bring in apples from the Brighton area. He describes the purpose-built stainless steel crusher and press they use and talks about the time when they grew apples at Cooney Farms.
