Making More Farmhouse Cans…

Well we’re almost out of the first Farmhouse cans, planning to fill three times as many cases for the next run. We’re thinking the label might be a bit too – well, a bit too Farnum Hill.  The idea for this first one was to tell Farmhouse fans “this is the same stuff – see, the label’s almost identical!” This time, should we add more pop or wow or whatever? SEND IDEAS HERE!

Because now it’s time to highlight canned orchard ciders, which cost more just because time, and real cider apples, cost more. Meanwhile for shoppers, canned orchard ciders are hard to ID amid scores of colorfully labeled bevs from high-production brands.

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 – show us how it’s done!

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.)
