It’s officially fall in New York and with all the fall activities that come into play one that is always great for this time of year is to visit a cidery in the Hudson Valley. It’s always fun and perfect for this time of year to visit a cidery. Ciders have come a long way from just the basic hard cider, now there are so many flavors and types of ciders, it’s very easy to become a cider connoisseur Here are top ranking cideries in the Hudson Valley and in Westchester county.
Pennings Farm Cidery- Pennings is open for the season and it is a must to try their hard cider. Located on a cute farm in Warwick, New York. They don’t make just one kind of cider, they make quite a few different kinds for literally every preference. My personal favorite is the bone dry and it is perfectly crisp. Order a thin crust pizza from their brick oven pizzeria with one of Penning’s cider and you’ll be in heaven. 4 Warwick Turnpike, Warwick, NY
Thompson’s Cider Mill- nestled right in Croton falls, this apple farm is known for making delicious sweet cider and has a knack for making delicious hard cider too. The Thompson’s Cider Mill offers dry, semi-dry and an apple rose semi dry flavor too. Don’t forget to try their apple cider doughnuts when you visit. 335 Blinn Rd, Croton-On-Hudson, NY
Angry Orchard- This infamous cidery has stocked grocery stores across the country with their angry orchard bottles of cider and little did you know we have it right here in our backyards.

Treasury Cider- This cider is part of a very well known farm, Fishkill farms in Hopewell Junction. They have a selection of dry, semi-dry and rose on tap paired with a tasting menu that goes well with the flavors of the cider. After a visit to the farm, wind down with a flight of crisp cider and a little something to nosh on. 9 Fishkill Farm Rd #6551, Hopewell Junction, NY
Hardscrabble Cider- Hardscrabble Cidery in North Salem is part of the Harvest Moon Orchard and farm.

A cider mimosa and cider bloody mary is something I think everyone would love to try. 130 Hardscrabble Rd, North Salem, NY
