Our Family Cider Press

We are hard pressed to recall moments that are better than bright days filled with delicious, homemade treats crafted by thoughtful hands, assembled on festively adorned tables. Or days surrounded by good people, familiar and unfamiliar with their sweater slated babies running under foot. It is hard to recall moments that are better than sun faded evenings filled with warmed beverages, or the colder beverages that surely warm one through and through.

For the past four years Our Family Farm has hosted a fall cider press. We are happy to report each pressing has involved all of the aforementioned highlights…good food, good people, and dang good beverages. If you couldn’t make it this year we look forward to adding your smiling face to the good times next year.

Here are some pictures from the day.

      Hi Cliff, We do this every year in October, in Eugene. Who knows where in Eugene it will be next year…You should definitely plan to come. David, Sharon, and George and the kids have all come down in different years. Always fun to have family there to add to the fun!
