Floréal Cider is a collaboration between Hiyu and Mt Hood Organic Farms to produce natural cider from our Biodynamic orchard in Mt. Hood. Our ciders are made from a diverse selection of heirloom varieties and aged for one year in barrel before bottling. They are available at Hiyu Wine Farm as part of the tasting experience and on their website.
Mt. Hood Organic Farms continues to graft and make our own cider apple trees (10,000 in the last two years) and now have 55 cider specific varieties with a total of over 70 varieties of apples and 9 pears, plus quince, on 60 acres of orchard and 200 acres of land. All USDA Certified Organic and Demeter Certified Biodynamic. Our cider will change as our young trees mature and our cider mix changes to include an ever greater diversity of the American, French and English sharps, bitter sharps and bittersweets, as well as quince and crab apples.
