Scrumpy's Cider

It's that time of year for all things Fall. 

And with that comes one of my favorite whistle wetters - CIDER!

J.K.'s Scrumpy has been made for over a century by the Koan family of Almar Orchards in my home state of Michigan.

The cider dates back to the 1850s, and this long running history is what makes the farm what it is. This was a time before pesticides, so to keep away the bugs and pests, they used guinea foul and pigs. It has worked this way for three generations, so why change a good thing.

And by doing things the old-fashioned way, it makes the product organic. The ingredients are simple - just apples and yeast, that's it. 

Scrumpy can be found at your local Whole Foods.
