About

A 2,000 tree orchard in Hawley, growing apples fermented into hard cider right at the orchard. I grow apples using IPM methods and do not use restricted-use sprays. I use only apples, sugar, and yeast to ferment the cider. The cider is crisp, dry, and refreshing. It is gluten-free and vegan-friendly. I slow-ferment all winter long, and bottle in spring. I never pasteurize or force carbonate.

I hope you enjoy the ciders. You’ll find them crisp, clean, and dry. They have bright apple bouquet and flavor, yet enough backbone to stand up to a sharp cheese or rich meal. The ciders are available at many fine local stores. If you don’t see them in your favorite store, please have the proprietor contact me.

Just Picked

Put on some clothing you don’t mind getting a little dirt on and spend an afternoon with family and friends discovering the local farms that grow our food. Keep in mind that harvest times are a little different every year. It’s always a good idea to call ahead to find out what’s available for picking.
