About Contoocook Cider

We use many of our 80 plus varieties of apples grown here at Gould Hill Farm to make our ciders.  Using the freshest apples means the flavors are at their peak when they are pressed and fermented, allowing for the apples to dominate the flavor.  Ours ciders are minimally processed and bring balance to the acids, sugars and tannins to express the true character of the apples and fruits.
