At South Hill Cider, our apples come from wild trees, abandoned orchards and orchards of high quality cider apples. Using traditional cider-making techniques we create timeless well-balanced ciders. Our orchard is on a peaceful hilltop as part of a harmonious ecosystem that relies on diversity and fertility as its foundation.  South Hill Cider produces ciders with individuality, quality, and elegance reflecting the terroir of the Finger Lakes region.

2014 was a light crop for the wild harvest. But we were fortunate to find a good crop in a high valley. My guess is that these trees got frosted out in 2012 and 2013 and that is why they actually cropped in 2014 when almost all other wild apple trees around the Fingerlakes were nearly bare.
