Located on our 150 year old family farm is the Farmhaus Cidergarten. Enjoy a variety of delicious ciders crafted onsite, available exclusively at the Cidergarten and not sold in stores. These ciders range from authentic to creative and everywhere in between. It’s a constantly changing tap list. so visit often. And stay a little while when you do – you’re family now.
The Cidergarten welcomes guests of all ages, on two legs or four. Bring a book, a blanket, a board game or leave it all behind. Surrounded by forest and twinkling lights, it only takes one visit to feel a million miles away from the daily stresses of life. It’s also the perfect date night spot!
New to the Cidergarten in 2018, plan on scheduled food trucks Thursday- Saturday (see current schedule below). If we do not have a food truck scheduled, feel free to BYO food and make it a picnic!
