Quick post from the weekend. My brother Ryan and I spent Saturday with some friends up in Chimacum, Washington transplanting a few trees at Finnriver's brand new cider apple orchard block. Sadly Washington suffered a bittersweet cider loss last year when Northwest super cider guy Drew Zimmerman shut the doors on his popular Red Barn Cider in Mount Vernon Washington.
Our loss was also our gain as Drew has been keeping himself busy sharing his wealth of knowledge and more as a cider and orchard consultant. Finnriver Farm & Cidery has been one of the beneficiaries of Drew's wisdom, advice, the Fire Barrel recipe one of his cider legacies, and now his 8 year old cider variety apple orchard.
After our 4 hour work party we joined in some of the festivities of Port Townsend's Wine and Chocolate weekend back on Finnriver Farm.I snapped a few shots for you to enjoy.
