All of our apples are grown on our modest, four-acre orchard in Gary, Indiana. We have over 400 trees, including 60+ varietals of cider and crab apples. In addition to traditional American and English varietals (e.g., Albemarle Pippin, Ashmead’s Kernel, Dabinett, Kingston Black, etc.), we also grow a number of French and Spanish varietals, adding to the complexity of our cider blends (and leaving the door open for future brandy and “sidra” style cider aspirations). We also have one Barland pear tree.

For the apple growers out there, our trees are primarily on B.118 or MM.111 rootstocks, spaced 18x18. We have a grove of semi-dwarf (MM.106, M.7, G.969, G.222, G.935) spaced 9x18. We are 100% organic, and do not use any pesticides or additives.
