Washington Island makes cider

Washington Island travelers had the opportunity to make cider this weekend and bring a different kind of memento back to the mainland. The Washington Island Farm Museum brought out apple presses from its collection. According to Executive Director Bonnie Burnham, one press is a vintage collector's item.

 


The apples had to be transported onto the island before the event from a northern Door County orchard. Five gallons worth of apples, once pressed, translates into roughly three-quarters of a gallon of DIY hand-pressed apple cider.
