Can you believe it's been 10 years since the Ice Bucket Challenge that went viral in 2014? But that doesn't mean people have stopped suffering from this horrible disease. 

On June 2, 2024, Blue Barn Cidery will donate 100% of the proceeds from Blue Barn draft products to the ALS Association!

 

Help us make a difference by joining us on June 2nd for Lou Gehrig Day at Blue Barn Cidery.

 

The MLB announced June 2nd is known as “Lou Gehrig Day". The annual, league-wide event will be a time not only to honor and celebrate the legacy of the Hall of Fame first baseman but to raise awareness and funds to fight amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), the awful disease that ended Gehrig’s life and informally bears his name.

Often referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, ALS is a fatal neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. Those afflicted lose their ability to walk, talk, eat, and, eventually, breathe. ALS can affect anyone, anywhere, at any time, and while

scientists are making some strides in understanding the disease and there are several potential treatments in late-stage clinical trials, there is no cure.

According to the ALS Association, more than 5,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with ALS each year, with an average life expectancy of just two to five years.

OUR WHY

If you visited our farm any day from 1987 through 2012, you probably met Craig. He could usually be found out in the orchards, or talking to customers, all with a big smile and a hearty laugh. When he wasn't farming, he loved coaching Greece Little League, golfing, skiing, or fishing with family and friends.

 

Craig passed away in 2012 after a courageous battle with ALS; a battle he fought with spirit and dignity, without ever losing his incredible sense of humor.

 

Craig dedicated 25 years of his life to his love of farming and the outdoors. We continue to remember Craig by collecting donations for the ALS Association, in hopes that someday science will find a cure for this devastating disease.
