Apple'n Arts cider pre-sale starts Thursday in Delmont
The cider will be flowing shortly, and before the Apple’n Arts Festival kicks into full gear, locals will have a chance later this week to avoid the weekend’s lines and grab themselves a jug.
The antique apple press operated by members of the Fort Allen Antique Farm Equipment Association may be more than 110 years old, but it’s still going strong as ever as association members get ready to turn about 250,000 apples into 7,000 gallons of cider.
The cider pre-sale goes from 5-8:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday. Customers can drive up to the barn housing the cider press to pick up a jug, at the Shields Farm property off of Fairview Street in Delmont.
For more on how the apple press works, see the video above from the run-up to the 2017 festival.
