We are a small commercial orchard established in 1995 in the gently rolling hills of Licking County, Ohio. For 15 years we were a pick-your-own orchard with ten varieties of crisp and tasty disease resistant apples. But time has taken its toll so we are radically changing direction. We sell apples when available and unpasteurized sweet cider in season. We do not sell hard fermented cider although we sell untreated sweet cider (apple juice) that you can make into hard cider. We will tell you how to turn it into a high quality cider using just the native yeast in a slow and lengthy fermentation yielding a smooth and somewhat dry wine-like drink with a slight effervescence.
Since the beginning of our orchard, we have been committed to producing high quality apples practicing low input sustainable agriculture. That has meant we use no fungicides, herbicides or other chemicals used by conventional growers. We manage the orchard following the practices for organic production. Even though we are not certified, you can be assured that the apples and everything made from them are free of chemicals and synthetic pesticides.
