Eaton Rapids, Michigan

Veteran, retired factory worker, pipe-smoker, farmer, but above all father. Photographer Christina Holmes takes us back to her third generation farm in Eaton Rapids, Michigan to document her father's annual rite of passage: the apple harvest. Using four varieties of apple (and one secret one), Alvah Holmes diligently picks, sorts, and tends his apples for a proprietary cider blend. As witnessed in the pictures of his hands and face, it is in our opinion that few men boast a dedication to the land such as Alvah's.

Special Thanks to Alvah Holmes, Mr. & Mrs. Philip Conklin of the Conklin Cider Mill, Vermontville Michigan.
