Our friends over at Eckert’s Farm and Country Store have been putting their shiny new Kreuzmayr equipment to good use. And it caught the news attention too! They’ve developed their own peach apple sweet cider that is processed into bag-in-boxes to be sold in their stores. The produce is all fresh-pressed on-site at Eckert’s without the use of preservatives or added sweeteners. For those curious of the process, you can watch how the sweet cider is made from their viewing window outside their packaging facilities.
Angie Eckert, vice president of operations states, “While we invested in the new mill equipment, it made sense to also invest in the product as well. We perfected our recipe and launched the new packaging so now you can enjoy Eckert’s apple cider longer than just in the fall,”
Eckerts, with their new Kreuzmayr equipment, is set to produce over 30,000 gallons of sweet cider annually. Read the news article here.
