We are a very small craft cidery currently producing about 4,000 bottles of our unique hand-made sparkling hard cider each year. Our alcohol content varies a bit by batch, but is around 8.5% by volume. From bins of the finest North Carolina apples to sparkling cases of finished product, the father-and-son team of Michael and Anderson O’Brien hand-craft each bottle of cider right here on the eight-generation family farm in rural Edgecombe County.
Most of our sales, both wholesale and retail, are currently in central and eastern North Carolina. A 750ml bottle of our delicious, naturally sparkling hard cider retails for $18 (plus N.C. sales tax), and a case sells for $16.20 per bottle -- a 10% discount. Some of our retailers may charge more or less depending on their overhead. It can be purchased from me on Saturday mornings at the Rocky Mount Farmers Market from 8:00 AM until 1:00 PM April through November. At this point, our facility is not open to the public, but we are working hard to accommodate visitors soon. Stay tuned! We are currently licensed to ship only in North Carolina and are happy to do so. A case of cider is both heavy and fragile, so expect to pay an additional $45 or so for shipping. Just send us an email to start the shipping process. While we are expanding our territory as quickly as possible, our current retail partners include:
Our cider is named for both our beloved relative and the scenic creek that winds past the farm. We are proud of our heritage and offer our cider as its hallmark.
If you have any questions or wish to purchase, please to contact us.
