On weekend days, join us for a cider tasting tour in the Finnriver Orchard! You’ll be guided on a sensory stroll through our organic fields and fruit frees with a Finnriver host as your guide. Along the way, you can enjoy samples of six of our farmcrafted hard ciders and fruit wines (ranging from 6.5% - 18.% abv), seasoned by fresh air and open, green space. The 1/4 mile loop around the land is interwoven with stories of farm history; apple, orchard and fermentation facts; and insights into our mission and land partnerships.
Note this tour involves walking directly on uneven ground and please contact us to explore mobility accommodations. Orchard tours are weather-dependent but we can conduct the cider tasting in a covered location if necessary. Finnriver hosts are unmasked and distanced whenever possible for the tours, and appropriate spacing between groups is maintained and appreciated.
Approximate tour time is 45 minutes, $20/person.
Offered at 1pm and 3pm on Saturdays and Sundays through October.
Pre-purchase is suggested and possible at this link, or you can sign up when you arrive if there are spots left. Ask us when you get here about orchard tours!

When you arrive, please see the host at the entrance and then meet for the tour at the kiosk in the field, just past the tables on the lawn and before the orchard. Please note that we've implemented the Jefferson County mandate requiring proof of vaccination for entry into the Cider Garden (with the exception of children under the age of 12). Have your proof of vaccination and ID handy and we appreciate your patience with this process. Thank you for keeping masked up when not seated at your tables.
We’ve also kept part of our pavilion panels open to improve air flow, so dress for all weather!
