Who is Pressed for Cider…We are a small Maine owned business that produces raw cider, and believes in supporting organic agriculture.

Our apples are harvested from the MOFGA certified Saint George River Orchard in Union.

Our goals and wishes for 2024 are… to incorporate more sustainable practices such as adding glass to our container choices.  And as always looking forward to working with our local farms, and seeing everyone at our custom pressings. We also are very optimistic for a fruitful season.

Two of our favorite apples are the Liberty and the Spigold.

The Liberty – Recommended for single-variety sweet cider.  A medium-sized round-conic bluish-pinkish-red apple with crisp, white flesh of very good dessert quality when really ripe. An excellent cooking and sweet cider apple!

The Spigold – Good for cider and ideal for fresh eating and baking.  A medium-to-large sized, bright golden apple with gorgeous red striping.  Flesh is crisp with a delicate flavor and delightful aftertaste.  Said to be a superior, more complex, offspring of its Golden Delicious and Northern Spy parentage.
