Cheers! Raise a glass of (dry, orchard-made, Farnum Hill) cider! Across the world, cider consumption multiplies in hot weather, for those refreshing, appetizing flavors that light up summer meals.

In our orchards, Spring 2024 did feature a couple of frigid nights, with modest damage to some fruit buds. But, damage was small to crops in our area! Bloom here has been pretty strong, pollinators have been busy, tiny fruits have "set" behind the pollinated blossoms. So far so good!

So, let's hope for good crops of both eating and cider apples, and a strong harvest season! This September, Poverty Lane Orchards pick-your-own and farm stand should be back! On cidermaking and wholesale side, we'd love a strong harvest of bittersweet and bittersharp cider apples...

Meanwhile, we're open one day a month to offer Farnum HIll growler batches, bottles, cans and bagnums. Hit the Contact button above if you'd like head's up notices about Growler Days... don't worry, we're not chatty or spammy. Of course, FH Ciders are available in stores and by direct ship. Touch the "Buy Cider" drop-down above for sources.

Enjoy the moment, season by season...

On Farnum Hill, we use the word “cider” to mean an alcoholic beverage fermented from particular apples, just as “wine” is fermented from particular grapes.

From dairy-land to orchard-land..

We are a mom and pop orchard and cidery owned and operated by Louisa Spencer and Stephen Wood. We have been growing apples since 1965.
