Whether it is from the fruit we grow at Scrumpy Ewe Farm or from various orchards we work with in the Fingerlakes, all Scrumpy Ewe Cider begins with individually hand-selecting each apple based on its unique characteristics to be used as a stand alone single varietal or part of greater, and very strategic, blends.

Ryan McGiver, sole-proprietor, farmer, orchardist, shepherd, pommelier, started planting European and heirloom American cider varieties in three test orchards in Schoharie Co over a decade ago. He now maintains over 800 trees, 17 cider-centric apple varieties on both modern, high density dwarf and traditional standard rootstock plantings. His small flock of Jacob sheep and Sebastopol geese provide natural fertilizer to both orchard systems and all are irrigated with pristine, mountain spring water, in an effort to maintain regenerative, organic-like farm practices.
From the Producer:

"Arguably the finest traditional American cider apple, Harrison, creates a dense, orange-wine like cider that is both full-bodied and well-rounded in finish and the Porter's Perfection apples give this cider tannic backbone, adding a touch of astringency and minerality. This low sulfite cider was fermented in stainless steel barrels to preserve varietal character and for natural, fine bubbles. Unfiltered. Bottled Jan 2023.  100 cases produced. "

Notes:  Lemon-curd, Honey, Beeswax, Orange Rind, Cinnamon, Bruised apple
