JOE DADDY’S HARD CIDER

JoeDaddy_10_joe-joey-3

THE GOOLD ORCHARD STORY began in April of 1910 when James and Bertha Goold arrived by rail at a small train station in Brookview, NY – the Brookview Station. Together they walked a mile to the apple farm they had recently purchased. During the mid-1970s Goold Orchards expanded the business and began pressing and distributing fresh apple cider year-round.

The Brookview Station Winery was added in 2006 by third generation owner Sue Goold Miller and her husband Edward. When they opened the doors there was just one wine, an apple wine. That year, “Whistle Stop White” was chosen over 70 others and was awarded the Cornell Cup as the Best Wine in the Hudson River Region. Since then the winery has added 12 additional wines and a line of Joe Daddy’s Hard Ciders.

Next time you’re visiting the farm and winery, stop by the tasting room for a sample of Joe Daddy’s English Style, Apple-Cranberry, or Triple Hopped ciders.

“As year round apple growers and cider producers, Ed and I enjoy seeing the resurgence of both fresh cider and hard cider markets” says Sue Goold Miller, a third generation apple grower. “It’s very exciting to have apple farming and cider manufacturing back in the spotlight.”
