    at least among the Amish.  Remember, we're talking no preservatives and using only local crops.

    You will probably have to wait till Sept./Oct.

      In October 1996, unpasteurized apple cider or juice was associated with three outbreaks of gastrointestinal illness. In the Western United States, an outbreak of Escherichia coli O157:H7 infections associated with unpasteurized commercial apple juice caused illness in 66 persons and one death (1). In addition, one outbreak of apple cider-related E. coli O157:H7 infections and another of cider-related Cryptosporidium parvum infections occurred in the Northeast. Apple cider is a traditional beverage produced and consumed in the fall. Cider often is manufactured locally at small cider mills where apples are crushed in presses, and the cider frequently is not pasteurized before sale.

      Take some microbiology folks.  Raw food may be fine right up until it isn't.  Its a numbers game.  Bacteria grow in poorly stored food.  More bacteria to start and more bacteria can grow.
