More on the Homestead Cider: 
The Homestead Cider is one of Western Cider's Community Collaboration Ciders with unique local provenance. Last fall, Moon-Randolph Homestead caretakers and volunteers harvested apples from the Homestead's orchard, planted by Ray and Luella Moon in the 1890s. These apples are old varieties--Winesap, Duchess of Oldenburg, Wolf River, Macintosh--that were grown for baking, and often for cider-making. Western Cider pressed and fermented these apples into a rare cider with elements of bright green apple, pear, and a dry, tannic finish, reminiscent of dry Montana sunshine and the North Hills, where these apples were grown.
