Join us in creating apple cider the old fashion way with a people powered fruit press. Help, wash, grind, press, pasteurize and best of all, taste the fresh apple cider. While going through the process we will discuss the history of apples, apple products, the apple-growing industry and the many different varieties of apples. Back by popular demand – take a taste test of over a dozen different varieties of apples grown by local orchards and place your vote for your favorite. A special THANK YOU to Ontario Orchards for supplying the apples for pressing and tasting.

Armed with only curiosity and a camera, dynamic couple Sarah and Greg test the compassion of Americans by relying on the kindness of strangers for a home each night. They spend every day in a new town, hoping that someone will be generous enough to open their home to two young strangers.

Following a route conceived when Greg spoke out in his sleep, the couple is literally chasing a dream through the five towns in the country called Bear – spanning between Washington, Idaho, Arizona, Arkansas, and Delaware.

Led by Sarah and Greg through a vast landscape of geography and characters, the film expands to paint a portrait of Americans as a community, and to answer questions about the people who aren’t us and the places that aren’t our homes. From the daughter of the last warrior woman of the Cheyenne mountain tribe in Montana; to a mother in Idaho dealing with the recent death of her youngest daughter; to friends in Mississippi trying to understand the “country” stereotype, maybe even reclaim it – each character is eager to share their own story. Ultimately, the film presents a cross-section of Americans yearning for connection, and able to find it in the kindness of strangers.
