Eve's Cidery (Van Etten, Finger Lakes, New York)
Eve's Cidery is a small family farm producing naturally fermented ciders from organically-grown fruit and from wild-foraged apples and pears in the hills of Van Etten, located at the intersection of the Southern Finger Lakes and the Northern Appalachian Plateau in upstate New York.
Founded by Autumn Stoscheck and James Cummins in 2001, Eve's Cidery has evolved into a cidery that grows apples for cider-making only, selecting specific varieties and intentionally growing them for cider quality: organically grown apples that bring concentrated flavors, structure and acidity to their ciders. For Eve's, terroir goes beyond the commonly accepted influences that affect a crop’s characteristics, and takes into consideration the influence that the life stories of the humans involved have on the qualities of the cider. For Eve's Cidery, a bottle of cider is a way to communicate: a place, a time, a deeper meaning. It’s an expression too, of the people who make it – who tend the trees and look after the yeasts.
