Bill Larkin made cider at home as a hobby. He would bring samples to friends and family for parties and get-togethers. “They would tell him how good the cider tasted and asked if they could buy some,” his wife Michelle Larkin said. “Bill asked me, ‘why don’t we make it and sell it?’ I wasn’t sure. I was pregnant with twins. He told me I would be able to stay at home with the twins.”
