In addition, the facility features a viewing room and a tasting room. In the viewing room, guests can see trees being packaged for shipment, cider being pressed and apples sorted. Videos will be played during the offseason to continue educating guests on those processes.

The tasting room will offer visitors the opportunity to taste-test products grown locally and across the world, including Arbor Day coffee, wines and other products. 

Apple House Market also has been expanded to more than 6,000 square feet and will be powered by 62 solar panels to decrease the building’s carbon footprint.

A portion of all proceeds from opening weekend will be donated to the Nebraska City Fire Department in thanks for helping to extinguish the fire.
