September Events at Virtue Cider
We received our first shipment of apples from one of our local farmers this past week! Allan Overhiser drove the very first apple crates to our docks, which officially marks the beginning of apple pressing season. When you visit Virtue this month, you'll first notice the sweet scent of fresh apples sitting in crates in front of our cider houses. Next, you may get a glimpse of our brand-new solar panels! They were just installed, and we'll be powering them on soon. Stay tuned for news about a solar kick-off celebration.
Swing by Fennville this month for apple season fun including house-made cider donuts, apple pressing parties, fireside stories, and of course our 4th Annual Apple Fest on Saturday, Sept. 21 where we will launch our collaboration BBQ sauce with Lille's Q! Click here for more details.
