Everything’s Better When Neighbors Work Together

“Because everything’s better when neighbors work together…”

Summer meets fall thanks to a collaboration with our friends and neighbors at Moon Hill Brewing Co.  Our post and beam Country Barn is transformed into the Brew Barn weekends June through October and for the Thanksgiving Harvest Festival in November, serving up our own Red Apple Farm hard cider, local brews, fresh roasted nuts, and popped-on-the-spot popcorn along with your farm favorites.  A day at the Brew Barn often includes live music, outdoor picnic tables where you can have food from our BBQ delivered straight to you, old fashioned family fun, and a patio overlooking the orchard.

The Story of the Brew Barn:

At the Brew Barn, we invite you to rediscover the simple pleasures: a refreshing cider; time with friends and family; or watching the sun set.

But the story doesn’t end there!

On Sunday, June 30th, 2019, a hail storm rolled over our orchard and damaged over half of our apples.  This could have devastated us, but instead, we decided to seize the opportunity to fulfill a longtime goal of ours: to start producing our own hard cider.  Thanks to a large crop of perfectly imperfect apples, and our ongoing collaboration with Moon Hill Brewing Company, we debuted our “Hailstorm Hard Cider” on October 11, 2019.

Our Hard Cider:

It’s a semi-sweet, unfiltered hard cider “born of stormy elements.”  Today, we sell our hard cider in growlers and kegs.  The moon and apple logo on our growlers represents the philosophy and motto we believe makes our cider that much sweeter:

The bright yellow moon of Moon Hill Brewing Company illuminates the silhouette of our 100-year-old McIntosh tree. This blending of the old and the new makes our cider unique.

It’s all good in the neighborhood.

We preserve the best of the old methods we’ve learned over 100 years on the farm – using our antique apple varieties and pressing our own unfiltered cider base in-house – while embracing newer microbrew techniques we’ve learned through our partnership with Moon Hill, founded in 2006. The result is a truly unique, complex cider that benefits from both perspectives.

Product Details
Glitterlimes
Since 1996, Debbie Tuch has designed and cultivated a world of jewelry that showcases the beauty in the foods we eat. With just a lime and some glittery resin, it began and has grown throughout the years as she has glittered countless local and international finds.

Following her BFA at RISD, Debbie balanced a fine jewelry line along with Glitterlimes. Around 2007, Glitterlimes began to be Debbie's primary focus and it has grown ever since with new fruits and candies added to her line every year. After 16 years in California, Glitterlimes now resides in Brooklyn, New York. Her first year in New York, Debbie designed and decorated the legendary Christmas Tree in Lincoln Square, and the second winter brought her line to Barney's for Lady Gaga's Workshop. Keep in touch to see what we do next! Some of the snacks she dries include, many citrus varieties (3-4 types of limes, lemons, oranges, blood oranges, pomellos) and other exotic fruits such as, kiwano melon, lotus root, starfruit, dragon fruit peanuts, pecans, walnuts and persimmons. Every piece is sealed with a self-made glitter resin. Debbie fully preserves the natural structure of the fruit, then adds an exciting glow to both decorate and reinforce it. While the jewels are water resistant, they are best if stored in a dry place. Due to their organic properties some fruits may darken or lighten, but will remain beautiful, shiny and glittery. Please do not ingest!
