Shacksbury Deer Snacks V Cider
Deer Snacks V
This year marks our fifth vintage of Deer Snacks, and it is better and more wild than ever. Each year we blend wild foraged apples from the Lost Apple Project with orchard fruit to bring you a complex but fun-loving cider. For the design, we partner with a different artist each year to give the new vintage a fresh look. This year, that artist is Eva Claycomb.
The gnarled fruit that we find while foraging has, for decades, been chalked up as food for wildlife, ill suited for human consumption “deer snacks”. We know better; we spend the fall searching for wild apple trees producing remarkable fruit that cries out to be turned into cider which we harvest by hand and take home to the cidery.
