Redbyrd Orchard Cider is a small cidery with Certified Biodynamic managed orchards nestled in the rolling hills of the Finger Lakes region of Upstate New York, on the traditional Gayogohó:no lands of the Haudenosaunee. We grow heirloom, wild seedling, and cider apples to produce distinct hand-crafted orchard based ciders.  Redbyrd Orchard Cider has been making cider for the public since 2010 and planted our first orchards in 2003.
