So I make cider in the fall, and I'm looking for a good local orchard that will provide juice made primarily from bittersweet or bittersharp apples. I've been going to Carlson Orchards (http://www.carlsonorchards.com/
) who provides a good blend of juice from several orchards, but doesn't really focus on the varieties with good tannin content.
I've called, emailed, etc. a lot of orchards in the area (all of those I can find via Google, anyway) but haven't had any success in finding out whether they provide apple juice with any specific blend of the more bitter varieties.
