Hundreds of visitors enjoyed a spectacular day and delicious apple cider at the Curran Apple Orchard’s annual Cider Squeeze in late August.

After picking plump red, green and yellow apples from the trees, squeeze goers washed their apples and proceeded to the press lines where they had a choice of riding a bicycle attached to a press or doing it the old fashioned way by feeding the apples into a manual or electric press.


Several people also sat back and enjoyed apple pie while listening to an outstanding bluegrass performance by the Sunset Bible Bluegrass Band.

Johnny Appleseed handed out apple suckers to visitors while the Big Apple delighted youngsters. The UP Historical Society presented information about the Curran House along with recipes from years past.

The orchard’s original owners and creators, Mary and Charles Curran, were also present in spirit at the UP for Arts booth.

Although both of the Currans have passed away, their legacy will continue in yet another way.

The UP for Arts booth featured a large photo of the Currans with their two horses, Christopher and Brewster. In honor of the orchard’s 25th anniversary as a community park next year, the arts group has launched a fundraising campaign to commission a life-size bronze sculpture of a little girl offering a horse an apple.

“Many long-time residents have fond memories of feeding apples to the Curran’s horses,” said UP for Arts member Debbie Klosowski.

“This sculpture is a wonderful way to remind us of UP’s agricultural past as well as the orchard’s role in bringing people together over the years.”
