Welcome to Dragon’s Head Cider!
Our orchard is home to more than 70 different varieties of traditional cider apple and perry pear trees.
Approximately 75% of the fruit that we pressed for cider and perry last year came from our orchard.
We do all of the cider making right here on the farm, including pressing the apples, fermenting the juice, blending the ciders, and bottling.
All tasting flights include a complimentary Dragon’s Head Cider glass that you can keep.
