Homemade Organic Apple Cider. Adults and kids work together to press early season apples harvested from our orchards. The freshly pressed cider is so good! [August 2003]

Good year for berries! Now that the drought has truly ended, all over Twin Oaks there is a profusion of berries ripe or ripening such as the exotically named goumi berry planted next to Kaweah. Goumi (Eleagnus multiflora) is a tasty berry related to the native autumn olive. Gooseberries, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and others are all heavily laden with fruit this year. Strawberries though are suffering from excessively wet ground. [Jun 6, 2003]

Shitake mushroom logs. We've started again cultivating shitake mushrooms for our own consumption. Dozens of white oak logs were prepared and will be cultivated in the moist woods near Zhankoye. [Summer 2003.]
