Ohio’s apple and peach crops are back on track for this year, which is good news for one vendor at the Canfield Fair.

Ed Tesner has sold apples and cider at the Hay and Grain bard for 50 years.

“They like the quality of our product and the apples are crisp and juicy,” Tesner said. “We sell Molly apples.”

Tesner runs a shop in New Waterford and said he brings everything to the fair.

His spot at the fair has developed a following during the last five decades.

“We bought a glass of ice cold cider and it’s refreshing and something I like to do,” said customer Gary Booth of New Waterford.

Twenty years ago Tesner added another choice for his cider fans— cherry cider.

“It’s made with cherry juice and it’s become quite popular and I think it’s a good alternative to pop,” said apple seller Geri DeCenso. “It has sugar in it but nothing artificial or imitation.”
