Blue Toad Hard Cider – Our Cider Farm in Virginia

We think it’s time you get to know a little more about our locations. We’ve got a few:

  • Our original tasting room in Henrietta, New York
  • A tasting room at Schutt’s Apple Mill in Webster, New York
  • A pub in Afton, Virginia
  • And our cider farm at the base of Wintergreen Mountain, Virginia

Each location has it’s own unique story and plays an important role in our company. The cider farm is the baby of the group, joining in on the fun in November of 2015. We purchased property that once served as a winery. The views are tremendous and make for a perfect location for a day cider tasting.

We are located at the base of Wintergreen Mountain, home to some awesome ski and snowboarding slopes. In the summertime, Wintergreen is transformed into a getaway – the perfect escape for those looking for a break for the humidity. If you drive just few miles down the mountain from Wintergreen’s entrance, you’ll find our Cider Farm – you can’t miss the sign!

The Cider Farm boasts 180 degree views of the Blue Ridge Mountains on 27 acres of land. We thought it would be a perfect place to get married – so we started hosting weddings there just last year! High View Farms hosts weddings and other events in one building while our tasting room houses our bar, where you can try a sample of any of our ciders. Just behind the tasting room runs the South Fork of the Rockfish River, just deep enough for your little ones to wade through and catch some Toads!

We hope to see you and your family at our Cider Farm soon! We are open:

  • Thursday- Noon until 5pm
  • Friday – 11am until 6pm
  • Saturday, 11am until 8pm
  • Sunday, 11am until 5pm
