About Eden Ciders
At Eden Ciders, they’re passionate about the quality of flavor that comes from unique apple varieties grown by local, small-scale orchards in Vermont. We produce a wide range of ciders, from driest to sweetest, with different methods of production, using single varieties and blends. Consistent through everything they do is a commitment to supporting small-scale family orchards, to the use of holistic and regenerative orcharding practices, and to rare tannic and heirloom apple varieties grown expressly for cider making. You can taste the fantastic fruit character of these apples in their cider.
Eden Ciders was founded in 2007 by Eleanor & Albert Leger when they purchased an abandoned dairy farm in West Charleston and made an experimental batch of Ice Cider in the basement of their home. Slowly, they expanded the team to include amazing people like head orchardist Ben Applegate, and built connections with other Vermont orchards passionate about sustainable agriculture and working with our terroir. Their mission, supporting the local economy and preserving the working landscape, is only possible because of our team and customers like you.
Their journey in cider has been as much about the people as anything else. Cider is a community. They are a small industry, and most of us are small or very small companies, or cider and cider apple enthusiasts. The connections they make become the root webs through which we absorb new ideas, see new opportunities, and foster new entrants, just as our trees do with each other in the orchard
