Riverview Road Cidery
Tree to Tap
Raising Cane Ranch grows the apples and fruits that go into making our hard ciders. We specialize in a simple and honest product, nothing fancy. At this point, our cider is a blend of fresh eating, heirloom, and traditional cider apples that we press in the Fall. During fermentation we add cultured yeast for a balanced flavor profile yet sometimes we only use the wild yeast from the fruit.
Our vision is for customers to come, soak in the chill atmosphere, and enjoy themselves. We’re just starting out, so we may be limited and we may experiment. Most important to us is the connection we have with our customers and that they have with our farm. We hope you enjoy our cider!

Outdoor Tasting Area & Hours
We are in the process of upscaling and converting our old cow barn into our cidery, including an indoor taproom. Until this space is finished, we will be serving our ciders at the outdoor tasting area. Parking will be in the UPICK apple orchard and our hours will be limited to afternoons on Fridays and Saturdays starting sometime in July through October as our supply lasts. We will be posting the most current information about our cidery on our social media and Farm News on the website.
Scrumpy (ABV 7.4%) - fermented from wild yeast, complex flavor, different from year to year, completely dry
Dry (ABV 7.7%) - fermented with cultured yeast, crisp, completely dry
Semi-Sweet (ABV 7.3%) – fermented with cultured yeast, back-sweetened with apple juice for a sweeter flavor, refreshing
Blackberry (ABV 6.9%) – fermented with cultured yeast, back-sweetened with apple juice for a sweeter flavor, made with our Triple Crown blackberries, very fruit-forward and tart
We plan on creating new ciders by adding other fruits we grow, such as Aronia Berries, Huckleberries, Plums, Currants, Cranberries, and Rhubarb, and using new techniques like barrel aging.
