How does a cidery tour this fall sound? Below are a few close by that are worth checking out:

Angry Orchard in Walden, NY (25 minutes from our B&B)

Orchard Hill Cider Mill in New Hampton, NY (25 minutes from our B&B)

Orchard Hill is a farm winery and cider mill with a mission to offer authentic farm-based, handmade hard ciders using traditional fermentation and distilling methods. Their acclaimed Ten66 is definitely one you will want to try. It’s aged in French oak wine barrels with notes of baked apple tart tatin, vanilla, and spice. Their Red Label Hard Cider and Gold Label Hard Cider are both delicious and very popular as well. In the tasting room you can enjoy a great selection of wines, beers, spirits, and of course ciders from around New York. They are open Sunday-Friday from 12pm-6pm and Saturdays from 11am-9pm.

Pennings Farm Cidery in Warwick, NY (35 minutes from our B&B)

This cidery is a new addition to the Pennings Farm and opened in 2014. Apples, hops and other fruits grown right there on the farm are used to make nine varieties of flavored cider. What is on tap in the tasting room varies as they are often experimenting and perfecting their ciders. They offer a variety of delicious snacks as well with a view that can’t be beat. They are open Saturday & Sunday from 1pm to sunset.
