The Taprooms at the Farm

“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 cider is a semi-sweet, unfiltered hard cider “born of stormy elements.”  The moon and apple logo on our growlers and cans 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

So many people enjoyed our Blueberry Crop Share during the summer of 2020 we decided to offer them in the form of a gift certificate for the 2021 season. The crop share entitles the recipient to pick 6 - 4 quart flats of blueberries. (Prepicked blueberries are not included)

After purchasing a BLUEBERRY CROP SHARE gift certificate simply come to the farm and pick it up or as an added benefit we can mail it to you. If you want it mailed, please include in the notes the address you would like it sent to. Mailing costs will be covered by Red Apple Farm.

To redeem, the recipient must bring the physical certificate with them to the farm and present to the cashier. The cashier will add them to our BLUEBERRY CROP SHARE LOG and will note the amount of berries picked that day and we will ask you to initial the entry. (For example, you come in for the first time, we make a page with your name on it, you decide to pick one flat that day so we write "1 Flat". That means you still have 5 flats you can pick another time). The cashier will also make a note on the actual certificate so you know how much you've picked and how much you have left to pick.

The certificate costs $100. It must be redeemed in 2021. Change will not be given if the entire amount of blueberries isn't picked by the recipient. Blueberry season usually begins in July and goes through August. In the case of a light crop we can extend the certificate to the following season.

Certificates cannot be exchanged or returned for cash.

Certificates will have your order number on them and they cannot be duplicated.
