Taste a Modern Tradition
Old Fashioned Cider Pressing
Saturday, November 4th: 12pm to 6pm
Sunday, November 5th: 12pm to 5pm
Many of you have asked and we're happy to announce cider pressing this weekend! You will be doing all the work so be sure to stretch out before you come...
- Containers for the juice - plastic buckets work great
- Patience - pressing takes time
- Muscles and elbow grease - it's harder than it looks!
Kids are great at pressing, there's a job for everyone, big or small! See you at the orchard!
The orchard is home to 20 apple cultivars ranging in tastes, textures, and subtle flavors. We are dedicated to growing our apple crop sustainably using integrated pest management techniques to achieve the highest quality of fruit. Our 2017 crop is Tru-Earth Certified.
Ecker's also features a handicap accessible, John Deere train, the Honeycrisp Express, an apiary, observational bee hive, morel mushrooms in the spring, blueberries in the summer, and Wisconsin peaches in the fall. Home to Hog's Back Brew Farm, Ecker's Apple Farm is now a must-stop craft beer destination open on weekends June through October.
Come walk our orchard rows; pick-your-own apples each September. Take in the fall colours with family and friends. Our orchard market is open daily each fall, brimming with specialty foods, our gourmet caramel, and our scratch apple pies. The orchard is our labour of love, please be part of it with us.
