InΒ 2012, we began the process of creating our award-winning Snowcapped Ciders. We started with exceptional fruit from our family orchards. We combined our knowledge and experience with our love of great tasting food and beverages to create our signature series of hard ciders. β€πŸ§€πŸ»
🍎Our fabulous fruit, including cider varietal apples, is grown in Colorado following thus eliminating the need for added artificial sugars to achieve a clean, fresh taste. πŸ‘πŸπŸ’
🌳Our family orchards are located at the bottom of Grand Mesa in the beautiful Surface Creek Valley of Colorado’s Western Slope #coloradoproud. πŸŒ„
At an elevation of 6130 feet, we are one of the highest elevation orchards in the world! The high elevation, warm days, and cool nights capture the crisp taste of Colorado, producing a clean and balanced cider.

β€œHow 'bout those apples.β€Β πŸŽπŸŽπŸŽ
This is one of the world's most favorite gloating phrases (the OG brag came way before the mic drop.)🎀😎
Well, we want to tell you about these apples FOR REAL! And keep following for factoids about all the varieties we grow for Snow Capped Cider. Buckle up, apple and cider nerds πŸŽπŸ»πŸ€“πŸ™Œ
This particular bin is full of culinary apples, ready to be packed.Β  Our family has been supplying grocers with apples since the early 1900’s! πŸ›’πŸŽ
While these beauties look good enough to eat, many cider apples are ugly. We are so blessed to be the grower behind our cider passion! πŸ‘©β€πŸŒΎπŸ»πŸ”₯

3🍎3  The Snow Capped Story
Five generations of the Williams family have been integrally involved in the fruit growing, packing & shipping process. In 2014, Snow Capped Cider was born of genuine curiosity, grew into a passion and burst forth as an award winning cider company. We are grateful to share our obsession with cider and hope to keep it going for another 100 years.

2🍎3  The Snow Capped Story
We packed and marketed the fruit grown on the first 40-acre parcel purchased also known as β€œThe North 40”.

That packing shed, which is still in use today, stands with much of the original equipment in place near the original farm house which is still surrounded by orchards.Β 
This was before the age of Amazon, grocery delivery, and packing and shipping fruit was time-intensive and challenging. Fruit was hauled from many orchard sites in flatbed semi-trucks to packing sheds. Wooden apple boxes were hand-made on site using tomahawks. The fruit was cleaned, individually wrapped in paper, and carefully packed in the hand-made wooden boxes. Each box was loaded onto a rail car, sent from Grand Junction, Colorado with huge blocks of ice for distribution.

1🍎3 The Snow Capped Story

Our history began in 1912Β in Cedaredge, Colorado where the Williams family put down roots, cleared their first 20 acres of land and began growing apples, peaches, plums and cherries.

Ok, everyone calm down and drink some French and English cider apples. Kick back for a while, relax, we’ve got the real cider to get you into that easy chair.
