The Cidery Aaron Burr CiderThe Cidery, which produces Aaron Burr Cider in Wurtsboro, New York, is a small homestead farm dating back to the early 19th century. The Cidery specializes in growing cider-apples, which are different from eating-apples in the same way wine-grapes are different from table-grapes. They use their own apples and other locally grown and foraged apples for one mission: to re-create “true cider”, the time-averaged most popular drink in America.

This focus is founded on the belief that early Americans drank history’s best cider. Reestablishing this involves holism -from farming to art, from the market to politics- cider is an identity.
