Bob’s gone, but the cider-making continues

Burr Hubbell reports that the ancient apple press at Hubbell Homestead farm will be operating Sept. 28 at 1 p.m., Oct. 5 at 1, 1:30 and 2:30, and Oct. 6 at noon, 1 and 2. Anyone interested in seeing history at work is welcome to stop by and watch the process unfold on three levels of the venerable barn.

Burr’s dad Bob Hubbell passed away August 29, but before he did, he made sure the knowledge of how to make a fair batch of cider was shared with his children and grandchildren. He would be very happy to see the old cider mill in operation once again.

For information on the mill, located at the Hubbell Homestead on Route 30 between Margaretville and Halcottsville, or on how to get your apples pressed there: burr.hubbell@hubbells.com; 586.2707.
