Tieton Cider Works is arguably an anchor business of the vibrant community of artists and artisans near Tieton, Washington. Its apples are sourced from nearby Harmony Orchards. With 55 acres and local tree farming roots dating back to the 1920s, Craig and Sharon Campbell’s Harmony Orchard boasts the largest acreage of cider apples and Perry pears in the state of Washington! This orchard provides Craig and Sharon with an end-to-end cider-making process starting with the planting and nurturing of cider trees.
Tieton now grows eight apple varieties commercially, producing eleven different ciders plus special seasonal releases. The 2015 releases feature the Cranberry Cider, popular with those new to cider drinking with its sweet, tart flavors, and the Rambling Route Hard Cider with pineapple aromas and mineral qualities in a portable can.
Visit Tieton Cider Works’ tasting room Wednesday-Sunday, at 619 J St., Yakima, WA. Approximately three hours’ drive southeast of Seattle, the charming town of Tieton also features a letterpress studio, a delicious Mexican bakery, and a goat cheese creamery.
Tieton Cider Works has partnered with City Fruit for the Annual Cider Taste fundraiser since its first year! City Fruit is very excited to have Tieton Cider Works attend this year’s Cider Taste on November 10. Don’t miss out on these delicious cider samples - buy your tickets today!
