JK’s Scrumpy Hard Cider
Our cider is not only natural, it is truly organic. It always has been. It’s simply a fact of what we do – and how we do it. We use no insecticides in the farm orchards. Rather, we do what generations before us did. We have a large flock of guinea fowl that wander about and eat the bugs. Fallen apples that have hit the ground are always a food source for pests, so we let Berkshire pigs wander the orchard and eat the fallen apples.
After the harvest, we press our organic apples and allow them to slowly ferment for up to six months. We then carefully hand fill and label each bottle and let it age for several weeks. There are only two ingredients in our original JK’S Scrumpy. Juice and wild yeast. No artificial flavors or colors and of course no sulfites or sorbates. We strive to make the best cider possible using these old methods and our traditional family recipe. There will be slight variations from bottle to bottle and year to year. Just as no two apples are ever the same!
In a fast-paced, instant gratification society all this may seem a little old fashioned, or not cost-effective. We have a cider that is not like any other, and the idea of playing around with what makes that happen… well, it just isn’t part of the plan.
