Ciderhouse Video: The first press of the season and the whole family was there!

Carr’s Ciderhouse is a family-run operation committed to handcrafting small batch, barrel-aged hard ciders as well as apple cider-based products for the pantry.

Our historic orchard is located on the northwest slope of Mt. Warner in Massachusetts, overlooking the breathtakingly beautiful Connecticut River valley.

APPLES, APPLES, APPLES

Our trees yield an interesting selection of hard cider apples such as Yarlington Mill, Golden Russet, Kingston Black, Goldrush, and Dabinett – cultivars that add a tremendous amount of complexity and richness to our ciders. 

PRESSING TIME

Apples are pressed in our historic orchard’s restored ciderhouse, on an elegant century-old Mount Gilead cider press (likely one of the oldest working presses in New England) that we lovingly refurbished.

DISTINCTIVE OUTCOMES

The results are elegant hard ciders  influenced by our choice of apples and how we blend the finished fermentations – that pair well with a variety of foods. Our fruity apple cider vinegar and rich cider syrup are customer favorites too!

A Commitment to QUALITY


crafting delectable orchard products true to our values of local origin and a light footprint

RESTORING…

After buying a neglected, historic orchard in western Massachusetts, we brought it back to life by planting over 2000 traditional American and European apple varieties. Today, we produce distinctive cider products on our restored press hard ciders, cider syrup, and cider vinegar   using a combination of our apples and those of other local orchards

…AND SUSTAINING

Our orchard's shallow sandy-loam soil, underlain with quartzite and feldspar bedrock, produces intensely flavored apples of high sugar content. We manage the orchard without pesticides or herbicides and an important part of our orchard work is spent breeding tasty new cultivars of pest and disease-resistant apples for cider-making.
