Where to buy 10 gallons of unfiltered, unpasteurized apple juice

I'm planning on making 10 gallons of apple champagne. Are there any orchards in Sonoma County where I can buy such a large quantity. My preference is gravenstein but I suspect it's a bit late. Thanks!

  1. Here's an old thread from Beer Board. Is California one of the state that requires pasteurization?

    1. Call Gabriel Farm.

      Gabriel Farm
      3175 Sullivan Road, Sebastopol, CA 95472

      1. You'll have many more choices of apple from Walker Apples in Graton. I don't think they sell juice but ripe as of last weekend were Golden Delicious, Fuji, Pink Lady, Winesaps, Northern Spy, and my favorite, Arkansas Blacks. Their phone: (707) 823-4310

        Walker Apples
        10955 Upp Rd, Graton, CA

          1. Rainbow Orchards makes an awesome unpasteurized apple cider. You can find them at tons of farmers markets around the bay area or you can visit their farm near Sacramento (on Apple Hill).
