Cider Farm Brands
Madison, Wisconsin
The Cider Farm is an organic orchard in the beautiful Driftless region of Wisconsin where we grow English and French tannic apples for our brand of apple brandy and ciders. We are currently the largest organic producer of such apples in America. We have a cidery and tasting room in nearby Madison, Wisconsin, where, in addition to the licensed cidery, we also have a rectifier permit to package our apple brandy. The tasting room features a local and organic farm-to-table menu. The Cider Farm plans to expand its cidery and tasting room concept to other locations.
