Note: I received two bottles of cider from Farnum Hill, with no obligation to review. I enjoyed them so much, though, I chose to review and share a little something with our readers. I was not otherwise compensated for this post.
I like hard cider a lot, so I was excited to try a couple bottles Farnum Hill sent to me. I was even more excited after seeing the bottle and packaging (just felt fancy-ish, for some reason). Nice work, Farnum Hill.
The cider is delicious and a step above the ciders I usually drink. They're all made with cider apples from the New Hampshire orchard where they're harvested, and while you can only get this cider direct from the farm and throughout the northeast states (locations here), they're worth seeking out if you're local.
Not only are the ciders tasty, but the orchard itself is full of fun events. They're open every Thursday throughout the summer for tastings and once September hits, it will be open every day through Halloween for harvest.
While you should absolutely try these ciders if you can, we have a nice consolation prize today for Food Lush readers who might not be in the northeast: A Farnum Hill/Poverty Lane Orchards tote bag (apples not included because that would likely not ship well) and also a t-shirt.
- Comment with: What you're most looking forward to this fall. (This is an unrelated-to-cider question, obviously, but I'm genuinely curious.)
- Contest will stay open until: August 28, 2012 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
- Who can enter: U.S. residents only, please!
- Other fine printy things: only one comment per person, the winner will be chosen at random and announce on this here site by August 29, 2012.
Thanks to Farnum Hill and to cider apples for fermenting so deliciously!
