Bear Swamp Orchard & Cidery

Certified Organic Hard Ciders and Apples

Low temperatures

We had overnight temperatures in the mid 20’s (24.7) on Tuesday (May 11) and were very worried about buds and blossoms that are vulnerable at this stage. After assessing things for a day or two afterwards it looks like we dodged that bullet. Our location on a slope towards the top of the hill lends itself to good air drainage and that combined with early sun may have saved us. Other growers I know in New York and New Hampshire were not as lucky, losing much of their potential crop.
