The old cider mill
This photo shows my dad, Bruce Stinson, and my son Aaron making apple cider with the old cider mill from my great-grandfather. Aaron's brother, Jason, and my mom and I watched and kept throwing apples in from my dad's trees. Aaron is turning the wheel, and Dad is punching apples down with the wooden pole. We did this every summer for years, then enjoyed the cider for weeks. My dad passed away five years ago, but we have such fond memories of doing things with him that he did when he was growing up on the farm.
