September may mean back to school for many, but at Great Country it means back to the farm for freshly pressed cider and picking apples!  We will celebrate the start of the apple picking and cider pressing season with tastings of Rinkers freshly pressed cider- The Best in the Valley!  Meet the team from Boulder Crest and purchase a “lucky duck” as part of our Pumpkin Chunkin’ Grand Finale Fund Raising Giant Pumpkin Drop on November 2, 2014.

We are excited to announce that we will be offering Apple Wine tastings from Northgate Vineyard and Corcoran Vineyard will be back with their apple wine and their new Hard Cider tastings with an additional tasting fee ($.50).  

Nothing says Fall like Apple Butter!   We have a fresh supply in our Farm Market.    ONE WEEKEND ONLY:  Sept 19 & 20….Come watch the members and friends of Catoctin Presbyterian Church in Waterford, VA have been making apple butter for more than twenty five years.  They will join us September 20 & 21 for an apple butter making demonstration.   Purchase some of their freshly made apple butter. Proceeds go directly to the church to support its operations, programs and mission works in the community.

To celebrate everything apple, the farm will have cider pressing demonstrations with the Zurschmeide Family antique1865 Cider press. Visitors are encouraged to try giving the press a crank to see how cider used to be produced.
