Cider Mill FAQ

 LostMeadowVT.com is a site I have dedicated primarily to my hobbies managing a small  apple and other fruit orchard and making quality, hand-crafted (hard) ciders.  In these pages I will share my experience with all things growing, squeezing, and fermenting, as well as in other areas as I see worth writing about them.

The 'commercial' side of Lost Meadow Cidery is closed until further notice. In past years I have opened my cider mill up to the public to purchase my juice, but, until further notice, I need to scale things back to tend to family, work, and school responsibilities. I'll be squeezing for myself and  friends on a limited number of weekends, but the scale I reached by 2011 was too big for a hobby, and out of balance with the rest of my life.

This site will remain active, and I will continue with my own cidermaking in the future. So, feel free to shoot me your questions and concerns, I'm glad to hear them.
