Winter into Spring 2024 - THINK COOL!

If you like local apples, root for an old-fashioned cold transition toward Spring! Leave the shorts in the drawer! Stay pale! Why? Because early warmth tells fruit trees to break their safe, freeze-proof dormancy. Sap starts to flow, buds start to swell, so the danger of a snap freeze (or more than one) starts to grow. Last year, one 21-degree night in May wiped out all our pick-your-own varieties and half our cider varieties. Their tender new cells were ruptured when ice formed inside. Pulling for a happier fall season in 2024!

Meanwhile, we're open one day a month to offer Farnum Hill growler batches, bottles, cans and bagnums. Look below for an email address, write us if you’d like heads-up "Growler Day" notices as those dates are set.

Of course, Farnum Hill Ciders are available in stores and by direct-ship! Touch the “Buy Cider” drop-down above for exact info. If you appreciate dry, flavorful, complex ciders that go brilliantly with food, pour our delicious cider-grown, orchard-made fermentations. 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.
