    Mmmm, Cheese and Cider

    Food & Style blogger, chef, and Hudson River Valley tastemaker Viviane Bauquet Farre found Farnum Hill through our mutual friend, Upper Valley tastemaker Meg Houston Maker. Viviane’s review of Farnum Hill SemiDry cider appeared recently, along with some mouthwatering descriptions of cheese pairings. We often recommend our ciders as a cheese course natural, and her […]

    Seacoast Sampling & Barley Pub Specials

    If you are out on the NH Seacoast, you may not get all the way across the state very often. So later this week we’ll be bringing Farnum Hill Ciders to two terrific locations: The Barley Pub in Dover, and Durham Marketplace in Durham. Both spots are true supporters of Farnum Hill’s real ciders; Durham […]

    Cider Photo of the (Summer) Season!

    A cider fan from NJ, Suellen, wrote to us late in the harvest season about a visit to NH — and here is what she had to say…… My boyfriend and I were up in Gilmanton Iron Works last week enjoying summer vacation at Crystal Lake. While at the Hannafords in Alton, we discovered the […]

    Draft Cider in Montpelier at Three Penny Taproom

    We found a nice mention of one of our favorite pubs — the Three Penny Taproom in Montpelier — on a recent blog. Here’s an excerpt from Mike Pomranz’s Slashfood blog entry: Despite being the second least populous state in the nation (ranking just below Wyoming), Vermont is well-known as a craft beer haven.
