of the farm: core

The center of our “Of the Farm” series, Core is made with apples from an orchard in Plowville, PA, where John Updike spent a part of his youth, then wrote his novel of the same name based on his formative years there.

With seasonal variability, this batch was wild fermented, then aged for 9 months, for a delightfully dry, crisp, and thirst-quenching cider with a very light underlying funk. Created with a blend of seven locally-grown apples.


of the bine: motueka + cashmere

Our hopped ciders continue to evolve with this, our third batch. This time around, we conditioned on more oats, and increased the dry-hopping with the delightful combination of Motueka Hops from New Zealand, and Cashmere Hops from Washington state. A blast of tropical aromas greet the nose, followed by a pleasant, almost creamy mouthfeel, and the juicy nectar and stone fruit notes of these fine hops.


of the farm: cherry cardamom

We are passionate about creating flavors with items from our local producers, but we do make some exceptions! Our (local!) friend traveled to the country of Jordan, and brought back a gift of some of the freshest, most aromatic cardamom we have ever experienced, and we made a cider with it! Along with Sour Cherries from our friends at Weaver’s Orchard, we offer Of the Farm Cherry Cardamom, a dry and lightly tart Cider with all of the aromas and flavor notes you would expect from such a delicious combination. Cheers!


of the wild: threads of gold

Paw Paws, Saffron, and Rose Hips?! Take a palate-pleasing Excursion with this delicate and worldly cider! Of the Wild: Threads of Gold starts with a wild fermentation, followed by a long rest on second-use Paw Paws. We then introduce the most valued spice in the world, Saffron, which brings a deep yellow hue and subtle earthiness. Finally, a touch of organic Rose Hips lends some complex tannic qualities. The result is a uniquely beautiful and delicious cider, a true Excursion for your taste buds!


of the farm: amigos viejos

Old friends can make the best things in life even better! In the spirit of those closest to us and the fond memories they conjure, we offer this delightfully refreshing cider. House-grown Lemongrass and Baby Ginger grown by our old friends at B&H Organic Farm down the road in Morgantown suggest the essence of the tropics created through the talents of our local friends. Enjoy cider with old friends!


of the woods: jolly ron coco

If there’s one thing that goes best with Rum, it’s got to be Coconut! We took a part of our Jolly Ron, a Rum barrel aged dry cider, and rested it on pounds and pounds of luscious coconut. After spending two months in that Manatawny Stillworks barrel and another month on the coconut, the result is a delightfully tropical cider, that will transport you to sunny days on white sand beaches. Take a sip, and let your mind take an Excursion. Cheers!


of the vine: french taxi

Our “Of the Vine” series continues to blur the lines between cider and wine. French Taxi is an aged dry cider rested on Cabernet Franc grape pomace for over two months. With light notes of the famed red wine and a pleasant tanic structure, this one will keep your mind guessing at what you’re actually drinking! A special thanks to Manatawny Creek Winery in Douglassville, PA for the supply of pomace and friendship.


of the woods: rasp y oak

Second-use Raspberries & French Oak. We continue to play with fermentation techniques and borrow a method more commonly used among beer brewers with Of the Farm: Raspy Oak. After fermenting this cider to complete dryness, we introduce second-use Raspberries – or raspberries already once used in a previous cider – and let it sit for some time along with copious amounts of French Oak and a touch of Vanilla. This method is an example of re-use, and a way to create interesting flavor profiles with ingredients that are typically considered finished. The result? A beautifully stated light raspberry presence with a subtle smoothing vanilla, and an underlying but pronounced oakiness. Cheers!


of the farm: wineberry

A taste of Summer with foraged wild Wineberries! There’s nothing quite like wandering around the woods in the Summertime and coming across a patch of Wineberries along the trail. The miniature wild raspberries burst with flavor, and make a day outdoors a special treat. The only problem is that they are an invasive species, and have been crowding out our native blackberries and raspberries. So the best thing to do is to pick them all! And that’s what we did, then we jam-packed them into a cider for your drinking pleasure. Please enjoy!
