We use 100% locally sourced apples and cider for 100% of our products, 100% of the time. Meet the great local farmers who are growing the cider apples we use to make our cider; they’re the best citizens we know.
More orchards are coming soon! We have so much respect and appreciation for the many orchards and growers who supply our fruit, and we are working to feature each and every one of them here, so check back soon!
Vermont Cranberry Company
Cranberry Bob, is the man behind Vermont Cranberry Company, a small farm with four cranberry bogs located in the hills of VT, also known as the first commercial grower of cranberries in the state.
They use a separator that was built in 1912 and still works to this day to separate out the berries that are not yet ripe and any other unwanted leaves and growth. The berries travel down a small conveyor, where more separating occurs and are hand packed into boxes to be sold locally.
Learn more about Cranberry Bob and his cranberry bog on our cranberry blog (hahaha) HERE.

“I love being able to work outside and not have to do the same thing 365 days a year. It’s very satisfying, and I have a very strong connection to the land here, knowing that my father, grandfather, and great grandfather were farming it before me.” -Casey Darrow, Owner, Green Mountain Orchard, Inc.
“Located in the hills above the village of Putney, VT, Green Mountain Orchards is one of Vermont’s largest apple orchards and is managed by the Darrow family. Four generations of the Darrow family have farmed the hills that make up Green Mountain Orchards. We grow primarily apples and blueberries for the wholesale market and boast over 125 acres of apples in production and nearly 18 acres of blueberries.” -GreenMountainOrchards.com

Sentinel Pine Orchards
“It certainly opens up possibilities, the way I see the [hard cider movement] growth happening; I could start putting in acreage devoted to hard cider. It shows huge promise, which is fantastic because it’s helping the bottom line.” -Whitney Blodgett, Owner, Sentinel Pine Orchards
“Sentinel Pine Orchards is a 500-acre orchard that sits on the shores of Lake Champlain. This orchard has been in the Blodgett family for 45 years and was passed from father to son in 1999. This orchard is part of the Vermont Land Trust and will be preserved as agricultural land forever. This orchard started out with 27 acres, and now Sentinel Pine has over 200 acres of some of the finest McIntosh and Macoun apples grown in Addison County (as well as other varieties).” -SentinelPineOrchard.com

“As a wholesaler, I think we’re at a disadvantage in many ways, from labor, to market access, to geographic location, so I think that the hard cider industry presents an opportunity that I recognize as very special. I think that the hard cider companies in Vermont are very interested in seeing that opportunity expand.” -Barney Hodges, Owner, Sunrise Orchards
“Sunrise Orchards is a 200 acre, family owned and operated, wholesale apple farm devoted to growing excellent apples for our local community as well as the entire Northeast region. We grow approximately 130,000 bushels of apples each year including varieties such as McIntosh, Empire, Cortland, Honeycrisp, Macoun, Red Delicious, Jonagold, Granny Smith and Paula Red.” -Sunriseorchards.com
