Details: Students, alumni and Hart House Members are invited to join us at Hart House Farm for a day filled with outdoor fun, delicious food and hands-on apple pressing! Pressing apples into cider is a popular activity in October and Cider & Song brings its own flavour to this longstanding tradition. In addition to enjoying the freshly pressed cider at Hart House Farm, you can also enjoy a little rural recreation by taking in the colours of the autumn foliage, enjoying a scenic hike or grabbing a little down time by the spring-fed ponds.
