Can-do Farmhouse Cans…

Canned orchard ciders need more attention! Not easy! Here on the farm, we’ll be grateful for any shoutouts on social media!

So far our canned ‘Farmhouse’ release has moved gently in NY, MA, NJ. Here in NH where more people know Farnum Hill, we see flow! For cider shoppers, orchard cider cans are hard to ID amid scores of colorfully canned bevs from high-production makers. Plus orchard cider fans still kind of expect their Farnum Hill – and other small brands – in bottles. Most folks just notice that some cans seem less eye-catching and more expensive! SO the bold distributors of orchard ciders deserve all the help we can give them in spreading the word. You ciderseekers out there with social media chops – feel free to help!

BACKGROUND: Back in 1999 when every canned cider was made fast, cheap and sugar-heavy, plus artificially flavored, we had to put Farnum Hill in big cider bottles that said “this is like wine.”  Since, canning  technology has improved. Hand-made beverages of character pour out in the same excellent shape as they poured in.  So, more people choose to pay what those cans need to cost. Phew! Cans recycle far better than glass, which helps too.  So we’ll see how this release goes for our little hillside cidermill. Let’s hope we can do it again bigger! Soon!  (CiderGrown background here.)
