J.K.'s Northern Neighbor Farmhouse Cider...$12.99 / 4pk 16oz Cans

We invite you to celebrate a collaboration of a few passionate American and Canadian farmers. The fruits of their labour are presented in this bottle, a family reunion of sorts.  This delightful cider is made from Michigan apples and a unique Canadian prairie apple, the Saskatoon. This natural cider has been carefully fermented at Almar Orchards using our traditional methods.

Orchard Gate Gold as a unique Artisan Michigan Farmhouse Cider, somewhere between English Scrumpy and a Normandy Cidre.
After the harvest, we press our organic apples and allow them to slowly ferment for up to six months. We then carefully hand-fill and label each bottle and let it age for several weeks to properly condition.  There are only two ingredients in our Orchard Gate Gold: Apple Juice and Yeast. No artificial flavors or colors and - of course - no sulfite nor preservatives of any kind.

J.K.'s Cuvee Winterruption Farmhouse Cider....$5.99 / 22oz
As the sun arcs low in the mid-day sky, this year's harvest is slowly fermenting in its winter slumber. Everyone here at the Orchard enjoys a few days to remember the hard work in the last year's harvest. We look forward to next year's crop of apples.  To warm ourselves in the cold norther solstice we enjoy our winter cider. Lightly spiced with ethically traded cinnamon, vanilla and a wee drop of syrup from old Maple trees on the farm.  Formerly: "Winter Solstice"
