Nelson Good sorts harvested Golden Delicious apples at Showalter’s Orchard and Greenhouse. Fruit from the orchard, owned by Sarah and Shannon Showalter, will go to make Old Hill Hard Cider. It’s one of only six “cideries” in Virginia. (Photos by Nikki Fox)
Workers wash and sort Golden Delicious apples in the grading shed at Showalter’s Orchard and Greenhouse. The orchard has met with great success at making hard cider.
The Showalters are hoping to produce 800 cases of Old Hill next year.
