Apples Make Cider in Eagle Creek

Cider Squeeze, Philip Foster Farm

As summer draws to a close, the goodness that grows in Oregon’s Mt. Hood Territory gets ready for harvesting. And what better way to celebrate all that grows here than with festivals that feature that crop. The Cider Squeeze at Philip Foster Farm on Saturday, September 21st should fulfill all your apple cravings.

The Cider Squeeze lets you press either your own apples or fruit grown on their farm into fresh cider.  There will also be live music, craftsmen demonstrating pioneer building techniques and vendors selling a wide array of gifts and other fun items. Admission is $5 for individuals or $20 for a family.

While at the farm you should check out the plethora of historical activities to participate in or learn about. For instance, wood stove cooking or blacksmithing demonstrations, corn-grinding with a cross-cut saw in an 1860s barn and attempting laundry with a scrub board and wringer. You can also visit a living history log cabin or try your hand at building one, tour the house and enjoy fun souvenirs, toys and games.

There will be live music on Saturday during the event but there is a limit of two gallons per family for the apple pressing, so if you were hoping for more than that you may want to visit the farm Sunday the 16th instead for free entry between 2-6 pm with unlimited bulk squeezing.
