Default Finding the right Cider/Juice

I've done a couple batches using the store bought cheaper juices and have been very surprised about how good they are. Now I wish to jump up to the big league and use some quality juice. Where I am now there is no fresh cider available until later in the fall and I am itching to start brewing a new batch now.

I was wondering if people could comment on the following:

1) Has anyone used Nash Brother Organic Juice?

It tastes delicious, but on the label there is no indication of preservatives. I was wondering if pasteurizing would be a good way to start it off to kill wild yeast, since I feel they would have labeled any chemicals used.

2) I've tried google and have been unsuccessful, so does anyone know any good websites for fresh cider?

the Nash Brothers label list only pasteurized apple juice. I would just pitch the rehydrated yeast right in.

From what I understand, this US based business carries a wide selection of bulk fruits, juices, concentrates. No idea if they will sell to the individual, but they offer gift certificates, which leads me to think they may. http://www.colomafrozen.com/products.html
