Cider Making at Pick Pocket Plantation

With Autumn comes falling leaves, cooler temperatures, and one of my favorite things...
Mr. Keith was making homemade cider at the plantation yesterday, an annual event.
He brings a load of apples from North Carolina.
The apples are washed and rinsed.
From the rinse cycle the apples are hand cranked through this machine resulting in...
apple cider:)! Yummmm!
All of this takes place in the packing shed, one of the original structures at Pick Pocket Plantation.
The inside of the packing shed is a photographers delight filled with vintage and antique reminders of the past.
Thanks for sharing in the cider making!
Come back next week for more on autumn at the plantation:)!


  1. Yummmmmm!
    Apple cider and Autumn sure go well together.

    Pray you are well.

  2. Hi Kim,

    I loved seeing all your wonderful photos of the Cider making. Thank you for sharing and for Sunday wisdom.
    Hope that all is well with you and you are enjoying living in your new home.


  3. Pick Pocket Plantation? I love the sound of that! May I have a glass of cider, it's always refreshing. I always get mine from Trader Joe's during the holidays!


  4. Kim,

    That looks like such a fun place! I love that the apple cider is made using all that old equipment. Like Bonnie, I get mine from Trader Joe's, which is DELISH, but I'm sure Mr. Keith's cider is out-of-this-world yummy!
