Snow …on Oregon’s south coast

We get snow here in Bandon about every 3rd year. Our first Autumn here, 2010 when we were still wandering in our RV, it snowed on Thanksgiving and again very heavily in Feb. 2011.  Knowing we’d just moved from Montana, our friends looked to us for an explanation!

We need a pulper and press

Pictured below just a fraction of what’s coming out of our little orchard this year. We have two Asian Pear trees with heavy fruit and the Bartlett Pear tree was amazing.

So we should probably find a crusher / pulper and a cider press. Keep your eye out for us?

With pruning and fertilizer, I think we’ll double the harvest. By next year, we’ll need a solution.

Something in the 5 gallon hopper range seems about right. Hand cranked.

Will trade produce for equipment.

100% no spray organic. The blemishes tell the story (the fruit is perfect beneath skins.)
