Excellent lunch and interesting variety of ciders. The service was amazing. We were short of time, so did not get to take advantage of the tour. A good lunch stop while touring the wine country. Funny thing to say, but they had the best fries...More

Beautiful surrounding, a dream place and very special. And frankly speaking - we knew that it was a pizza place, nice pizzas and service. But this is such a shame, as the overall package could and should have been for something much smarter than a...More

Grab a drink from the tasting room and they will put it in a plastic cup if you tell them you'd like to go outside. Adirondack chairs to lounge in while looking over the cidery and orchard. Great fun on a sunny day!

This place looks really nice. When you first arrive, the large, open, quiet countryside setting is very appealing. There are whimsical decorations, a small self-guided tour available, and many nice little places to sit down for a drink. Unfortunately, it just goes downhill beyond that....More
