Third-Grade Cider Press

Third-graders at Cayuga Heights Elementary recently celebrated fall by picking their own apples and pressing them into apple cider!

In early October, the classes traveled to Littletree Orchards to gather apples, then washed and prepared the fruits, filled the press with apple pieces, ground them up, and pressed out the juices. 

A new cider press, purchased with the help of an IPEI grant, helped students to the work!
