August Growler Day will be the last monthly G-day before the fall season opens. It will be one of the Thursdays in the middle of the month, join the the email list to get notices when we set the date.
Come, taste, refill your growlers, buy cans, bottles or bagnums, and walk the fields! Throughout the orchards, apples will be growing and life will be buzzing, chirping and scurrying. We send notices & reminders to everyone on the Growler mailing list, otherwise we're not e-chatty or spammy.  (Contact Us to join.)

We should have growler batches that closely resemble our bottled X-dry and bagnum-ed X-dry Still. In addition, we'll offer a sharp, fresh-tasting "Chicago Blend" made for our on-tap accounts in the Windy City. We're out of that one singularly floral, still "Dooryard" batch! Hope we can come up with another one-off soon.

(You may recall that some cider varieties yielded modest crops last year, somehow weathering the big freeze of May 21, so new Farnum Hill fermentations are emerging now from 2023 pressing.)

And of course the bottles (Extra Dry), cans ("Farmhouse") and  bagnums (Extra Dry Still) are also available up here. Delicious for any occasion, (also, prime gifts for people with wide-awake palates).  They're also available in NH liquor stores & Co-op Food Stores. Our Extra Dry Still bottles can be found at an extremely good price in local Price Choppers and Hannafords.

Whether or not we see you up here in the barn, we wish you all the jolly, delicious, fun moments that Spring can offer! Also hoping like crazy that we're all wearing layers outdoors through -- we'd love an old-school Spring.  (Hoping for a long, cold transition into warmer weather. Early warmth brings early bud-break in the orchards... which greatly increases the danger of a snap freeze that can kill off all or part of an apple crop...
If you ever see our Instagram you might have caught our re-shoot of Groundhog Day, since the Pennsylvania version was just not our preference!) Last year's early-warmth-to-snap-freeze destroyed most of this region's apples, including 3/4ths of ours... as many of you know.

P.S. We also have Farnum HIll Ciders hoodies, S thru XXL, for anyone in the mood for merch. They're mid-weight, layer well, great for a long cold transition to Spring.

(The last Fall Growler Day 0f 2023 was November 12.)

OLD NEWS of 2023

Fall Growler Days start September 9th, continue every Saturday through October.
That's every Saturday - Mark your calendars.
Saturdays we'll be staffed to offer all our alcoholic beverages,  once a week, unless some special occasion crops up! 
Feel free to email suggestions for special occasions: write Louisa: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

What's going on? You may have heard that a freak overnight freeze in May destroyed some apple crops? That happened here. Branches are not bending! Come walk the aisles, see perky apple trees taking a break! So we're doing a different fall season this year, welcoming people to roam, offering Farnum Hill Ciders & local treats for sale, but not selling apples... Here's the gist.
Thursdays through Sundays, we will be open 10AM-5PM.
On Saturdays only, we'll offer Farnum Hill Ciders. Credit cards will work on Saturdays.

On Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays, we'll set up an honesty box in the retail stand: That means cash or check ONLY.

Local treats? Syrup, maple candy, honey, jams and jellies, mums early on, gourds and pumpkins later.
To you who've shopped the November retail stand in past years, with the honesty box, it will be like that but... without apples.

Fun in the fields and woods: Picnic tables will be out, fields and walking trails will be open. Hanging out/running around/playing will be encouraged.

This year might be the time to join the email reminder list: email Louisa at the address below. We won't pound you with emails.
