Without apples, people would have no way to show teachers appreciation, keep doctors away, or pelt Isaac Newton with inspiration. Delight in this essential fruit with today's Groupon: for $25, you get an outdoor family tour for up to six people and samples of sparkling ciders and preserves, along with a $25 gift card at The Cider Keg in Vittoria (a $75 value).
The dulcet bounty of The Cider Keg's sweeping orchards yields an effervescent profusion of award-winning ciders and mouthwatering preserves. Families of up to six members can explore the land surrounding the cider mill on an up-close walking tour (a $50 value), with views of the apple orchard and strawberry fields. Visitors learn how juicy Norfolk apples travel through the entire cider-making process before sampling their delicious fate as the farm's six sparkling cider varieties, which include strawberry-rhubarb, apple-cranberry, and the Christmas cider, which seals in holiday spirit like Santa's specially designed off-season cell. The flash-pasteurized, filtered sips ($7 per bottle) are free of alcohol and added sugar, and they complement The Cider Keg's selection of preserves, which readily accompany visitors home with the help of a $25 gift card. Bring home the Apple Pie in a Jar ($6) preserves, whose mellifluous essence tastes as sweet as the tears of a gingerbread man, or luxuriate in the mulling spices' ($4 per box) soul-warming bouquet. During inclement weather, the outdoor tour may not be available.
