Cidery and juicery
In 2015 Köpings Musteri was born from the need of making something of the small farm that has been passed on to us from generations before us.
To make the farm into a sustainable business we had to either increase the acreage or grow different crops together with an increased processing of the produce into a refined product
When we made the decision we came home from work, tired and craving rest to find the chores of the farm needing our attention.
The very reason that we took over the farm from the generation before us was a genuine interest. This interest deserved more focus. We decided to plant apple trees buy juice-pressing equipment and bottling machines and a pasteurizer. Now we bottle the juice and cider and label our bottles in the old stable were the horses stood that helped break this ground into fields once.
Other parts of the farm has turned into areas of tasting, storing och pressing the juice and cider-must
Now we work with the farm and what it gives. It can support many people if we plan it carefully. The very soil that once supported large families and later lost that ability as a grain producing unit can yet again proudly pay wages our workers.
The living process
In our work we want to take care of the Swedish fruit and berry produce and particularly the apple, the mythical fruit attributed with magic powers concerning, love, health, knowledge and beauty
Now we have the machinery to help private house owners make juice of their fruit in bag in boxes and we make specialized craft drinks for the restaurants in bottles.
We focus mainly on single variety juices since our orchard contains approximately 100 varieties of apples.
In the series Forest & Orchard we make first class blends with 100% juice from rhubarb, strawberry, lingonberry, blackcurrant and chokeberry mixed with apple. The unique blends have absolutely no addition of sugars, water or preservatives. Nor do they contain clarifiers, so the juice is more often than not quite cloudy.
