Our 60 acre orchard in Walden, NY is nestled in the heart of the Hudson Valley. Hudson Valley is known as the Apple Belt of New York, which is the second largest apple producing state in the country. Apples, like wine grapes, take character from the local soil and climate and the Hudson Valley offers some of the best conditions in the country for growing apples: great soil, reasonable winters, wet springs, and humid summers.
We are committed to bringing traditional cider varieties and lost heirloom varieties back to the United States. As such, certain areas of the orchard are designated for new cider apple plantings and varietal research, in collaboration with local institutions and growers.
