"Good apple pies are a considerable part of our domestic happiness." ~ Jane Austen

Last year at this time, I had wanted to post about Hollenbeck's Cider Mill, a fixture in my community for the past 80 years.  Something always seemed to come up that prevented me from getting out there.  Fortunately, I put the season-opening date on my calender this year and managed to go with my friend Billi for its opening day.  Unfortunately, the one thing that they did not do while we were there is press cider - so no pictures of that!  

Congratulations on your 80th year!

And a reminder that Half the Sky will air on PBS on Monday and Tuesday of this coming week.

    1. It was a wonderful day Anja! Thanks for visiting!

  3. Too funny! The day Jeff and I made (our first) trip to Hollenbeck's, that same long line of customers greeted us! We promptly turned and got back in the car, only to come back on a week night - perfect for anyone who doesn't want to be tempted by incredible, fresh, hot donuts. ;)
