The idea of this activity is to teach the little ones and recover the traditional way of making cider, a very prolific activity in Noreña. To give the importance that apple juice deserves , a qualitable product with a great welcome among the public that perhaps has been a little postponed by the natural cider, that does not stop being the top product.
