Clear gallon and 1/2 gallon growlers
I love living at Silly Goose Farm because we have amazing neighbors. Our neighbor. Mr. Dykeman, sold me about 30 gallon and half-gallon glass growlers (at 50 cents a piece!) from his barn sale this weekend, as well as about 10 of the vintage green juice jars featured above (with original caps!). These growlers are perfect for cider-making this fall. I told Mr. Dykeman I was looking to explore homebrewing, and he said he used to make gallons and gallons of beer and wine "back in the day," and offered to teach me all I needed to know and use all of his equipment (bonus! I won't have to invest much money!). He also said that a lot of the area around our house was prime hop-growing property, and I'd probably be able to grow my own hops easily. Awesome! I can't wait to experience the tutelage of Mr. Dykeman, and am so grateful we have kind and generous neighbors like him.
