Cider Garden Tastings with the cider maker.

Visitors and locals are always welcome to sample our latest ciders in the Cider Garden, we generally have 4-5 varieties to try, and once you have found your favorite, you can enjoy it by the glass or get a growler to take home. We have light snacks and local artisan foods available, but you can also bring a picnic and sit out in the orchard. Our award winning cider maker, William, is on site every Saturday to discuss the process and and the current cider varieties. We welcome cider fans from all over to stop in every weekend through mid December.

When: Every Saturday through December: 2pm-7pm
