In the springtime, our thoughts may turn to love but in autumn, they turn to pie — at least mine do. Sweet or savory, pie is an ancient dish, known at least as far back as the Romans, Greeks and Egyptians Even the most authoritative references are vague as to the origin of the word “pie,” so I feel competent to leap into the gap with my own associations.

Critz Farms is known across Central New York as a premier place to visit to get apples, pumpkins, maple cider and Christmas trees — not to mention the animals to see and pet, the playground for the kids and the food to eat — but what most people may not know is that 2015 is the 30th year of business in Cazenovia for Matt and Juanita Critz. And after 30 years in business the Critzes have no intention to slow down — they have announced that by spring 2016 they plan to start brewing their own beer and selling it under the company name of Critz Farms Brewing and Cider Company.

Harvest Moon Cidery to make 2,000 bottles of cider
When Matt and Juanita Critz, owners of Critz Farm and the Harvest Moon Cidery on Rippleton Road, decided to invite the public to contribute wild apples to help make a new “Community Cider” by Harvest Moon, they were hoping at least a few people might find it interesting and participate. Their goal was to receive at least 50 bushels of apples, which is half of what is necessary to make one batch of hard cider, and if their collection fell a little — or a lot — short, they would just use their own apples to fill in what was needed. On Sunday, Oct.4, the final day of the weeklong community apple collection project they were doing, the Critzes were somewhat surprised to find they did not make their goal – they quadrupled it.
Alicyn Hart said she will never move a restaurant again — but she’s also hopeful she won’t have to.
