Rockland Cider Works

Orangeburg, 845.735.4689

The southern Hudson Valley isn’t exactly known for its cider production, but Rockland Cider Works is changing that perception. The Orangeburg establishment crafts a range of dry ciders at Van Houten Farms. This farm setting was established in 1946, and the first batch of RCW cider was pressed in 2018.

Wooden stands and a lush garden mark the guest experience at RCW. Patrons sip fresh pours outside as they frequent food trucks and fire pits. Apples from the nearby Dr. Davies Farm in Rockland County fuel a line of sugar-free and gluten-free ciders. Past unique flavors have featured ingredients like jalapeño, peanut butter, black currant, and much more.

Sip this: Dry Run – Rockland Cider Works’ flagship beverage is distinctly crisp. It is fermented with Winesap, Stayman, and Golden Delicious apples for a dry yet fruity cider experience.
