Our Organic Hard Cider available at:
We are a small Certified Organic and solar powered orchard and hard cider producer in Ashfield Massachusetts (Directions). We are growing apples with a holistic bent, taking into account the health of the flora and fauna as part of the orchard system, staying away from the use of broad spectrum pesticides. From May to early November we have hard cider and tastings, and in the Fall apples available for pick your own and ready pick with different varieties that are ready at different times throughout our fall season.
Some of what we offer- all products are certified organic:
We are continuing to develop our sustainable orchard management practices, which go beyond organic pest-control methods to include attention to ecological cycles in the orchard. Orchard management of this type is still in its infancy and it involves a lot of experimenting, and trial and error. Weather and yearly pest pressure varies greatly and will affect fruit quantity and quality.
We are only a decade old, but growing orchard; we appreciate your patience and suggestions as we grow.
