Farnum Hill Extra Dry Still orchard cider is a truly dry cider. No sugar, and no fizz to distract from its bountiful fruit, cleansing acid-tannic balance, and delicious finish. A true orchard cider will taste like apples the way wine tastes like grapes: remotely, but there is so much more! By fermenting the juices of true cider apples we bring out a whole new sensory palette - these apples are talented. We grow them, we know!
So don't search for apple flavors in our ciders - enjoy the full experience! Pour at red-wine temps: 55-65F - if you want the whole show.

Brand for Farnum Hill Ciders
We are a mom and pop orchard and cidery, Louisa Spencer and Stephen Wood, growing apples on the same New Hampshire land since 1965. We make dry or barely off-dry Farnum Hill Ciders from a wide range of cider apples grown here at Poverty Lane Orchards. Back in the late 80's our market for U.S. Extra Fancy McIntosh had shriveled, so Steve started planting nasty-tasting bittersweet and bittersharp cider apple varieties for no market at all. By the late '90's those inedible, unsaleable apples had forced Farnum Hill Ciders into existence. After twenty-plus years of attention to the flavors, aromas, and blending effects of cider-apple juices, our massive expertise says: there's much more to learn. Now we grow a dozen or so varieties for cider. Some originated in England or France, some over here. Some were selected/bred for fermentation, some have no documented cider history. But they all bring dynamic, intriguing complexity to dry ciders. And they all, wherever they originated, grow to peak quality here. If we woke up on a different piece of land, we'd have to re-start learning from scratch.
