Cider is fermented apple juice and is often called "hard cider" in the US. However, worldwide, the term "cider" is used most often to describe this fermented beverage and will also be the term used throughout this publication. The results presented in this publication serve as a general guide for evaluating the economic feasibility of producing cider apples in central Washington as of 2015. This publication is not intended to be a definitive guide to production practices, but is helpful in estimating the physical and financial requirements of comparable plantings. To avoid drawing unwarranted conclusions for any particular orchard, readers must closely examine the assumptions made in this guide, and then adjust the costs, returns, or both as appropriate for their own orchard operation.
