about us: Our farm and cidery rests on the banks of the Methow River near Twisp, Washington. We only press certified organic Washington apples, selected from our trees and other local orchards. We do not add sulfites, preservatives or sugars. To retain the subtle flavors often lost in processed ciders, we do not filter. Our cidermaking is kith and kin to the natural wine movement: organic practice in the orchard, and minimal intervention in the ciderhouse.
where to find our products: Our ciders are available at all local Methow grocery stores, on-tap at East 20 and Sun Mountain, and soon to be on tap at the Sixknot Taphouse in Winthrop. Our cider is also distributed throughout Western Washington, see: www.sixknotcider.com/wheretobuy.html
