The Best Cider On Earth Comes From This Country Farm Stand In Massachusetts
Apple cider and fall just go together in Massachusetts. The refreshing taste of a cool, iced cider or the warm, spicy scent of a mug of mulled cider is pure autumnal heaven. And nowhere in the Bay State can you find cider exactly like the delicious varieties sold at Russell Orchards. Here’s what you need to know about visiting.
Russell Orchards is a picturesque family farm in Ipswich, Massachusetts.
It's the perfect place to head once the weather turns cool, especially if you're a cider fan.
This spot is a local landmark and has more than 120 acres of fruit trees that provide the raw materials for their unparalleled cider.
If you stop by, you'll be treated with a full selection of delicious ciders, hard ciders, and fruit wines.
Shoppers will find tart and sweet sparkling ciders made from heirloom apples that perfectly pair with everything from fine cheese to picnic sandwiches.
The "wine" offerings here sound almost too tasty to bear — blueberry wine, elderberry wine, lilac wine, strawberry rhubarb wine, peach wine, and plum wine are all on the shelves.
They offer hard and normal cider, so everyone can have something sweet to drink.
Their fruit and herb vinegar is also incredibly unique and tasty.
Don't forget to grab something tasty from the bakery section to munch on with your glass of cider. The apple cider donuts are perfect.
You can also pick up fresh fruits and vegetables in the shop if you fancy.
Head down to this little country farm for a glass of cider you won't soon forget.
