Here, Amy demonstrates the way Juice is extracted from apples through these old style hand turners. Working that crank with apples thrown into the bin is not an easy chore...As the apples are crushed and smashed by the (not visible) crusher in the top square bin, the juice and "apple smush" (as I call it) drops down into the round barrel. From there (and for demonstration purposes) in this case, the juice flowed via a plastic tube into the small white plastic pitcher that you see at the bottom. The Orchard has a little shop (I will show that in a few days) which sells this apple juice (extracted via larger, faster, and more modern crushers) as well as all kinds of other apples and apple-related products ;-) And I am here to tell you, that juice is absolutely fantastic!

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)
- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
