We're glad you had fun, but we notice you only gave us 3 out of 5. Was there something we could do better? Anything less than 5/5 hurts our rating, so we'd love to know what would achieve that in your experience. Thanks for coming!...More

Tasting is $5 per head and includes 5 or 6 ciders and wines + souvenir glass. Well worth the stop. Friendly. You are bound to find at least one cider you will like.

I buy apples here religiously. They are the best in the area. And you can even pick your own! They also have berries in the summer -- and frozen berries available off-season.

Sorry, no. We don't have the staff required to run PYO that day. The only weekdays we're open are Labor Day and Columbus Day Mondays. Sorry for the inconvenience.
