However, let’s start with the cider as I always suggest when I’m at Jays.

  1. Following pressing 3/4 ton of apples comes the real test however… waiting for months while the stuff ferments into cider! There’s an exercise in patience if ever I heard one.
    Good that folk like Jay are still practicing this noble art however, keeping such traditions alive etc.
