Sounds like only the southern most orchards received heavy damage due to the frost here in Minnesota. But if that damage was wide enough spread the prices everywhere will reflect it.

Here is email exchange with my local orchard/cider supplier.

ME: Hello Mike,

I know the late frosts were devastating to the MI tree fruit crops. I was just wondering if you have any insight as to what the availability and pricing will be for cider this fall?
I made 35 gallons of hard cider last fall and am running out already. Having it on tap seems to have increased consumption. Will be looking to make around 50 gallons this year. Looking forward to the hard cider and perry tasting event again in Sept.


His reply: I think there will be cider to be had. The problem is…. Bulk cider will be $7-$8/gallon


Ouch.......I think I paid $3.75 for bulk fresh pressed juice last year.

That sucks. I already pay close to $8 for a gallon of Apple Juice at Whole Foods. I mainly buy it for the one gallon glass jugs though.

For the 4th of July, I went to see fireworks in Lyndonville, NY. One of the best places to see them is at the edge of the LynOaken apple farm. Every tree that I saw in the orchard looked like it was loaded with small apples. It looked to me like they were going to have a very good crop.

A friend of mine here in New Jersey has about 900 trees and it looks like he won't even be able to make an apple pie this year.

Good to know!

Got a letter from Mott's apple juice at work the other day, looks like they're already expanding their search for juice and are offering top dollar to anyone expecting apples this fall.

Expect to see a lot of 'from concentrate' on products with apple ingredients this year. Good for growers in China and Argentina I guess.

I am VERY new to cider making, and have gotten lots of positive feedback from my family, and good constructive feedback from my club.

I'm looking for local juice / cider from my area when it comes available. In the meantime I'm practicing my cider making on the store bought juice. I've used both Tree Top and Costco for my sources.

What is the shelf life regarding store bought pasteurized apple juice and cider?
