Frequently Asked Questions

Do you sell gift cards?

We sure do! You can purchase a gift card at the bar any time during our business hours. There is a $3 fee for cards purchased over the phone needing to be mailed. You can also purchase an e-gift card on our home page.

Can I bring in my own food?

We're sure you make great food, but outside food is not permitted in the Tasting Room.

Are you dog friendly?

Due to New York State Health Code, we can not allow dogs inside the tasting room. However, we would love to see you and your pet out on our patio and lawn area! Please view our Pet Policy below.

Can I walk around the farm with my drink?

Although that sounds wonderful, no you may not leave the fenced-in outdoor area. 

Can I pick my own fruit at the farm?

Not only can you pick your own, but we encourage you to do so! The farm is open for pick-your-own July through October for things like blueberries, raspberries, apples, pumpkins, and more. Visit www.greenacreupick.com for more information about the farm and picking.

Pet Policy

Please review our Pet Policy before visiting the cidery with your pet!

  • Well behaved pets are welcome to our outdoor seating area! (Pets may not enter the cidery without paperwork proof of being a registered service animal.)

 

  • When you arrive at the cidery with your pet, please have a member of your party visit the host stand and request outdoor seating. Please do not help yourself to outdoor seating that appears available as sometimes a customer is simply at the bar getting a drink.

 

  • Pets must be on a leash or in a carrier at all times. Pets are not permitted on tables or chairs for any reason. 

 

  • Please bring necessary items needed to clean up after your pet. Failure to do so will result in an escort from the premises. 

 

  • An outdoor water spigot and water bowl is available on hot days. If you can't find it - please ask! (Please note: we can not always accommodate a shade request for outdoor seating. We ask that you keep this in mind when deciding whether or not to bring your pet)

 

  • The cidery gets very busy on the weekends. If your pet does not do well in large crowds or around other pets, please reconsider bringing them with you, or visit us on a weekday.
