Headwter Cider
112 Forget Road
Hawley, MA
Grow what you Press – Press what you Grow. Traditional Dry Ciders from the orchard.

We use the apples we grow ourselves. We press at harvest, then slowly ferment at cold temperatures all winter long. This preserves the flavor and bouquet of the apple. These ciders are dry and crisp – never sticky and cloying. They are made to be enjoyed with friends and a meal.
