The Hogan's history

A whistlestop tour of just a few key dates spanning the last 30 years and a few thoughts on what the future may hold...

This is John Stewart, a neighbour to the Hogans and the man who first introduced Allen to the art of cider making.

Spent too long drinking John's damson wine....

After a lifetime without electricity, John finally caught up with the times so he and Allen bought an electric scratter which was used to chop up the apples. Until then they’d used a scratter powered by the water driven mill.
