Our Orchard

Our Orchard

Planted on a hill overlooking Lake Michigan, our orchard on Washington Island is the heart of our business. Its rocky limestone soil and climate provide the perfect growing conditions for our European and American cider cultivars.

Our Cider House

Our Cider House

Visit our Tasting Room today!

Originally built in the 1930’s, our renovated Cider House was once a transfer building for a fishery and an orchard. We preserved the clean, simple feeling of the space, but added a geothermal system that cools our stainless steel fermentation tanks while heating the building. The result is the perfect environment for making and tasting our handcrafted French-style ciders.
