Welcome to Windy Hill Apple Farm!

November 18, 2014 Untreated Sweet Cider Available

We are now into the season for making sweet cider from GoldRush apples. We pressed over 160 gallons in the past few days and, of course, it is chemical free and unpasteurized. You can purchase it by the gallon at $10 per gallon. If you want a larger quantity and you provide your own container, you can purchase five gallons or more at a discounted rate of $9 per gallon. At a specific gravity of over 1.058 it will make an excellent hard cider and we can advise you on how to do that.

Yes, we have lots of GoldRush apples in the cooler for your selection. We are open for self-serve every day from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Call us before you come out at 740-587-3632 for large purchases or just to make sure we have cider in stock.

October 15, 2014: Apples Ready to be Picked

We will open this fall on Saturday, October 18th. for a couple of weeks. While we had a few apples on several varieties, this year we have only one variety, GoldRush available for picking. The other varieties, while they blossomed, hardly set fruit. The trees have simply gotten too old to produce. We have started to replant but the focus of the orchard has changed to concentrate on apples for high quality juice for drinking as sweet cider and making hard (fermented) cider. Stay tuned for availability.
