PENNINGS FARM CIDERY

 

ROOTS RUN DEEP on Pennings Farm whether you’re standing in the twenty-plus acres of The Cidery Orchard or standing next to one of the Pennings Farm Cidery owners, siblings Stephen J. Pennings (SJ) and Tori Pennings Cosimano, who were born and raised on the farm. These deep roots have created a strong foundation allowing the brother and sister team to firmly branch out producing craft cider.

Growth never ceases on the farm. The Cidery Orchard is more focused than ever on a healthy balance of cider-specific apples aside varieties that are most loved by fall apple-pickers. New ciders continue to emerge while on-site canning of flagship ciders increases. Signature ciders are available at retail stores, bars, and restaurants throughout the Hudson Valley, New York City, and Northern New Jersey. Online shopping allows for out-of-state shipping of canned and bottled cider and merchandise to 41 states.

New to the menu of ciders is the Pennings Varietal Collection. Twelve limited release ciders were produced in 2021 from choice cider apples grown in The Cidery Orchard on Pennings Farm and neighboring New York State orchards. Canned cider varieties continue to increase, with plans in the works for a mixed twelve-pack to be released in 2022. The brick oven pizza kitchen takes brick oven pies to culinary highs with unique topping combinations featuring seasonal and locally grown ingredients.

As the Cidery enters its eighth year in operation, expansion continues to welcome the growing number of guests. The taproom has undergone decorative renovations featuring new beverage and food signage and artwork produced by local Warwick, NY, artists. These accents compliment updated seating, lighting, and woodwork, and renovated bathrooms. The outdoor bar allows for quicker service during the busier seasons. Overhead heaters make outdoor seating comfortable and extend the season to begin early in the spring and through the fall seasons.

The farm in its entirety is home to multiple family-owned and operated businesses. Pennings Farm Market, a multi-dimensional retail business, began as a seasonal roadside farm stand more than thirty years ago has matured into a year-round farm market, garden center, and pub and grill, owned and operated by Steve and Jill Pennings, the parents of SJ and Tori. Pennings Farm Market stays as fresh as the seasons with elaborate pop-up style departments that include an outdoor beer garden, ice cream stand, donut shack, and a winter indoor beer garden. The Cidery Orchard, surrounding Pennings Cidery, makes it convenient for sourcing the freshest apples for cider making and apple picking, while providing beautiful scenery for visitors throughout the seasons.
