Portland Cider Company’s Fourth Annual Community Cider Project Is On


Apples for cider

It’s that time again: Portland Cider Company’s Community Cider program (AKA PDX Apple Recycling) has launched! And they want your apples… and fruit! Fallen and unwanted backyard apples, pears, berries, plums and other fruit—all are welcome. Drop them off Monday through Saturday from 9am to 9pm at Portland Cider Company’s Clackamas Taproom + Cidery (8925 SE Jannsen Rd, Bldg. F).

The cider will be sold later this year and proceeds from the sales will go to benefit the nonprofit Oregon Wild; their conservation efforts work to protect and restore Oregon’s wildlands, wildlife and waters for the enjoyment, love and appreciation of all Oregonians.
