In our part of Appalachia you can find old-timers who have been making cider from their family orchards or the back yard tree for their entire lives–we hear some of it even gets turned into apple jack. However, most of the younger people we’ve met haven’t picked up cider making, and the generational knowledge seems like it may be at risk. ”
