At Wildcraft, we pride ourselves on being community organizers and responsible stewards of local resources. The annual Community Apple Drive™ allows us to combine our passion for cider with our commitment to community involvement.
During the Community Apple Drive™, WildCraft Cider Works invites you to bring your fallen and unwanted fruit in exchange for WildCraft trade. Donate your unwanted apples, pears, and plums (all varietals welcome) in exchange for cider or juice.
Cider doesn’t get more local than when it is made from the fruit of your own trees. Whether you’re a fruit connoisseur with a basket from your personal orchard, or your neighborhood is a jungle with an abundance of forsaken fruit, your contribution can help us resourcefully craft distinctly local, and uniquely enjoyable, ciders. In the summer and fall, when neighborhood trees paint the sidewalks with fallen fruit and backyards turn into wild places with too much fruit to handle, our WildCraft family is ready to help you turn your fruit into something more. WildCraft will create four distinct annual ciders in the Community Cider Series made from this crowd sourced fruit. The Community Cider Series will pay it forward, with a percentage of the proceeds from all sales being donated to local community groups focused on land conservation, stewardship and food education.
