Today we interviewed Ian, from Calico Cidery. I ask all kinds of questions from the tastings to the process of making cider. Enjoy!
Calico Ranch was started as part of an original homestead and includes a portion of the historic Saunders Ranch. The original planting was a pear orchard until this was expanded when Ed Hart planted apples in the 1960’s. Additional apples have been added to increase production and add over 100 different varieties, including many cider and antique types of apples.
The ranch has been operated as both a family u-pick and for fresh fruit sales. Hard Cider has been made for family and friends for nearly 20 years and is now being made for retail sales. Our Cider is made from 100% local apples grown here on this mountain ranch.
We hope you can visit and make this a part of your local experience as expressed by our Cider!
