Soquel Cider's Organic Orchards | California

Soquel Cider is located at the Everett Family Farm in Soquel, California. Laura and Rich Everett were looking for away to get back to the land and enjoying a bit of farming, when they bought the farm in 2000. There is a Farm Stand with vegetables and fresh pressed apple juice, that is open to the public - the cidery is not.

In this chat, Laura and I walkabout the orchards and explore the diversity of fruit trees that makes this place so special. We see the beautiful Comice Pear Orchard. These trees are unique as the trunk is so short, about 24 inches tall before the limbs start spreading out.

We roundabout the Pear Trees and take a look at Laura’s Orchard which was planted in 2007m when she set the root for a bunch of cider apples. Every two rows is a different apple of
