The BX Press
We are a third-generation family farm, growing apples on the same land that was once home Barnard’s Express Stagecoach Company’s famous horse ranch.
Our family has proudly been growing apples here since 1946. Today we grow more than two dozen varieties including modern dessert apples, nearly forgotten heritage cultivars, and vintage cider fruit.
These sugar-laden fruit are hand-harvested and slowly fermented into delicious craft ciders which we blend, bottle, and share at our orchard ciderhouse.
Starting May Long Weekend – Looking to sample our ciders? Taste a range of ciders at your own pace, relaxed at a table, with one of our curated cider flights. Better yet, plan to pair your cider with some small bites or delicious food from our wood-fired kitchen. The selection in the flights changes weekly so that you can always try both classics and new releases.
Our Character Series Ciders
Each of these ciders is named for a character from the history of the Barnard’s Express and the Caribou Goldrush. Attend one of our summer tours at the cidery and hear the stories of the character while you sip it’s namesake cider.
