OPEN Hours, Directions

(till it gets dark by 5pm, then we close at 5.)
You can now pick-your-own Macouns, Macs and Cortlands, also find all three ready-picked in bags. Besides those the number of ready-picked apple varieties in the tent is growing! (Gala, for example.) The heirloom trial orchard, “Two Below,” will open Columbus Day weekend. (Variety chart PDF.)

SweetCider4WebAnd our delicious sweet cider is finally being pressed and tearing out of here as usual.
(One reason it’s so good is that it’s not pasteurized. But don’t worry, because no dropped apples go into our sweet cider – hence the micro-organism that caused all the trouble can not possibly get into the cider.)
On the Farnum Hill Cider side, the tasting corner is open 7 days a week too, and growler customers get $2 off each Thursday. PLEASE CALL WITH QUESTIONS:  Things change here all the time. We can’t update this website nearly as fast as we can talk. 603/448-1511! Really!

In every harvest season, we offer many kinds of apples to pick, more kinds to taste and take home. Big, small, sour, sweet, red, green, yellow, gold, squeezed fresh for Poverty Lane sweet cider or squeezed & fermented for Farnum Hill ‘real’ ciders, the fruit you find here offers pleasure and surprise to just about everyone. (The land around here grows shockingly good apples, some of the best in the world — and some lovely pears too.)

Early on we offer ready-picked Ginger Golds and Paula Reds, pick-your-own Macs and Cortlands, plus Clapp’s Favorite pears. Soon the Macouns, Gala, and some early heirloom apples come on. More and more varieties of apples & two more kinds of pears ripen as September passes and October begins.

A few weeks into harvest, you can explore and pick in our amazing trial orchard, Two Below the Barn, containing dozens of different apple varieties, some early, some very late (variety chart here.)  Be aware that some varieties are coming on early this year, so the times on the chart may not apply in every case. Call! (603/448-1511)

So visit often for: unbelievably good fruit, free tastes of everything we grow or make, free wagon rides on fair weekends, picnic tables all the time, views across the valley, acres of space inside a big fence (kids can run far, but can’t get lost). Local pumpkins, gourds, squash, jams & jellies, but no candy racks, and no pressure.


GROWLER DAY takes on a different Fall form, since the orchard is open all week: 9am-6pm* on weekdays, 10am-5pm weekends and holidays, up to Halloween. Anyway, a Thirsty Thursday in the Fall gets you $2 off each growler refill!
*Actually when it starts to get dark early we go to 5pm weekdays too.

Then, back to not-so-scenic Growler Day, most Thursdays through winter, spring & summer, 12-6pm down in the cider room. Please check the calendar or join us on Facebook for specific growler info. (BRING ID if you join us in person, please.)

What’s growler day? Cider orchards the world around sell their fermentations to locals who bring in refillable containers.  They’ve done it for centuries, we’ve done it for about five years now.  Here, you come taste through the ciders WEB Growler solo WEBon offer, buy a half-gallon growler for $3 if you need one, fill it for $12, refill on future Thursdays.  During these hours you can also buy any of the FH blends now in bottle.

P.S.  Kindly understand that we don’t redeem your growler bottles for the one-time charge of $3: the whole idea is for you to keep’em and keep refilling’em. (If you go off cider, pass the growlers along. They also convert very nicely into lamps.)

Also, find our adult-beverage Farnum Hill ciders locally in stores listed on the Where-To-Buy page: NH liquor stores, the Co-ops, Price Choppers, etc.
