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 make sure all well-behaved pets are on a leash, and be prepared to clean up after them. Dogs are strictly prohibited from being on top of tables and chairs, including dogs in handbags or carriers.

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 for more information about the farm and picking.

Can I bring my infant/child under 21 to the Tasting Room?

Yes, we are a family friendly establishment during our daytime hours. When the sun goes does it is a more adult atmosphere. Children must be under adult supervision at all times. Children disrupting other Tasting Room guests will be asked to leave WITH their parents.

Do you take reservations?
