Posterity Ciderworks is a small scale cidery and orchard that produces estate and small batch heritage apple, pear and quince alcoholic ciders. Sustainability and regenerative agriculture are central to their mission. They practice low intervention methods allowing fruit varietal character to shine through.
Posterity Ciderworks produces cider in Mokelumne Hill, a small town within Calaveras County, California. This area is often called the Sierra Foothills or Gold Country. Some of the unique fruit you’ll find in their ciders is grown on their family farm. They started planting their heritage apple and pear orchard in 2019 & chose to plant full-sized rootstocks -- uncommon in modern fruit agriculture due to the longer growing time until the trees yield fruit. They believe they’re worth the wait, though, as these trees will ultimately outlive all of us and produce fruit & cider for several lifetimes. Other fruit used in their cider comes from a selection of orchards in the Sierra Foothills.
