Field Trip Today

We went to a local apple cider/apple butter making tour today and the kids had a blast!!  It was awesome to watch the apples getting pressed and a huge "apple fall" of juice being squeezed from them!  The kids learned about how apple cider and apple butter are made.  They also learned a little about different kinds of apples.  The tour guide turned on the conveyor belt that went to the second floor and each kid got to drop an apple and watch it travel alllllll the way uppppp!!  The littler kids thought this was the greatest thing ever!!!  We also learned they have no waste after feeding the leftover apples (called pumice) to local cows!
