    FHC makes a short list

    A well-informed friend of F-Hill sent this link, which – if you don’t feel like clicking – rates our Dooryard 1502 among The Five Ciders Under $25 You Need Right Now – “you” being readers of punchdrink.com. The other four are European and admirable, so we’re very pleased. Punch called ours the ‘lightest’ of the […]

    Cider…the (manly?) libation of our forebears

    We’ve known for a while that apples grow well in various climates throughout this country. A recent article by Mike Gruss of the Virginian-Pilot highlights legislation to support the work of orchardists and cider makers who enjoy a kinder, gentler climate than we do.
