the cidery

Under a sweeping blue sky anchored by the majestic Alleghany and Blue Ridge Mountains, you’ll find Halcyon Cider Company nestled into the lush Shenandoah Valley. Formerly the home of a large mid-century dairy farm, we decided to transform a remaining 1940’s milking barn into our production facility. We breathed new life into the walls and allowed the natural flow of the barn to inspire our workspaces. The central feed stall room is repurposed as our wash, press, and bottling workroom. Two side feed alleys inspired our primary fermentation and maturation rooms.

Our tribute to the craftsmanship of days gone by didn’t stop there. An open-air breezeway connects our production facility to our tasting room with a story all its own. Take a moment to linger in the doorway before stepping back in time into an 1860’s log cabin that belonged to local legend Thelma Downey. With painstaking care, we rescued the cabin from the slopes of North Mountain in Rockbridge County and restored it log by log to its former glory.

Run your hand along the cidery walls to feel their history and let nature transport you as you drink in the goodness of our pure apple cider. Cheers to older ways and better days at Halcyon Cider Company.
