Dooryard NOW

Farnum Hill barrel batches‘Dooryard’ is an old/new idea, typical of this place. Abroad, many cider orchards do big business at the farm, where locals refill their empties with whatever the cider-maker taps that day. In 2008 our dooryard began drawing enough cider explorers so we could do small business the same way.   Then in 2011, bottled and kegged Dooryard ciders went to market. Each bottle or keg sports a Dooryard batch #, clickable below for batch notes. Four years on, U.S. ciderphiles are multiplying, and exploring boldly. We hope the character of each FHC ‘Dooryard’ offers rare sensory moments. HOWEVER: If Farnum Hill is new to you, be aware that none of our ciders is ever sweet. They range from radically dry to barely off-dry. Fruity, aromatic, singular, intensified by the growing conditions on our chilly northern slopes — just not sweet.

‘Dooryard’ in the dooryard: Thirsty Thursday

Locally, Farnum Hill Dooryard Cider is whatever we’re tapping, week to week. Growler customers buy a half-gallon brown glass jug at the orchard for three dollars; each refill costs ten dollars on Thursdays and twelve on other days during orchard retail seasons. Sometimes the cider is a strong bittersweet, sometimes it’s something more familiar, sometimes you have choices.  Send a note and we’ll take care of that for you!
