Erickson's Orchard is a family owned apple orchard and strawberry farm in Bayfield, WI. WE have been in business since 1954. Together we have kept the farm growing – planting and selling apples & strawberries for pick-your-own and ready-picked, raspberries, blueberries, pears, veggies and pumpkins! From our Country Store, to our environmental commitments. Erickson's Orchard and Country Store is rooted in tradition while embracing the future.
The Cider Story
In the old days, fermented apple cider was practically a national beverage. Today's apple cider is known for its fresh 100% natural flavor. It contains no additives or preservatives so it must be refrigerated. If you plan to keep it more than a week, pop it into your freezer-then just take it out, thaw & drink at your pleasure. According to the International Apple Institute, the pectin in apples helps keep cholesterol down. A cider is high in potassium & low in salt. It makes a delicious & healthful alternative. In addition to drinking cider "straight" it can be served as an icy slush, a cider float or sundae or frozen to make cider pops. Don't forget how good hot cider is on a frosty evening! Erickson's special blending of sweet & tart apples results in a fresh, tantalizing award winning drink. (presently, we pasteurize our cider which has made it safe for your use and prolonged the shelf life.) (Taken from the Fruit Farm Gazette of years ago) I
