Ohio’s landscape is the perfect palette for touring visitors; the shores of Lake Erie offer a coastal feel, perfect for soaking up the sun’s rays, while the Hocking Hills region, nestled on the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, provides rock cliffs, gorges and the perfect getaway for nature enthusiasts. The many cultures and ethnicities that make up Ohio’s population can be found in “pocket districts,” such as German Village in Columbus and Little Italy in Cleveland. These cultural neighborhoods are infused with delicious foods and authentic art, and are a hotspot for their array of cultures and identities. Ohio is also the land of corn and soybeans and has over 140 apple orchards listed (the third highest of any State), with 16 active cider makers, and growing.

Barrel Run Crossing Winery and Vineyard Inc- was derived from a family run farm that has been in existence for 4 generations. It started with a passion for farming and a desire to keep the existing family farm in agricultural usage for the foreseeable future. Traditionally grain crops, hay, soybeans, and wheat, have been grown with an initial vineyard planting in 2006. Our orchard is comprised of 2 acres of apple trees. The initial trees were grafted three generations ago and we have had new plantings every year for the past few years. Older varieites are Rhode Island Greening and Jonagold. New plantings were sought out due to their superiority for hard cider. All the apple trees on our farm are treated with organic growing practices and a low spray pest control program which results in a slow growing, complex flavored apple and hence a superior hard cider. We have purchased some local Ohio grown apples for our initial production while our plantings mature into productive trees. Here at Barrel Run we are Ohio made. We thank you for your continued support and hope to see you again soon!

Redhead Ciderhouse- was established in 2014 by its two founders, Josh Raboin and Joe Burnham IV. Located at Burnham Orchards in Berlin Heights Ohio where the apples are picked, pressed, fermented and packaged all on site. Josh formed a friendship with Joe while working on the farm as a teenager. During this time Josh’s father Randy was responsible for pressing Burnham Orchards apple cider which is where making hard cider all began for Josh. Randy would bring home fresh apple cider and over the years would make hard cider from this for family and friends. Josh became intrigued with the process and started to learn some Raboin family tradition of making hard cider. As the years passed every fall and winter Josh would obtain fresh apple cider from the farm, start the process of fermenting it, and turning it hard for family and friends. Josh began experimenting more and more throughout the years with different recipes and ingredients developing unique hard ciders. Talks between Josh and Joe about bringing these hard ciders to the public began in 2012. Fast forward to today and Redhead Ciderhouse is now producing and distributing these hard ciders throughout Northern Ohio. We strive to bring the freshest, purest, and most unique hard ciders to the public. Please enjoy, drink responsibly, and just have a good time.

This property lies in a region known for its flourishing vineyards and the remnants of an old concord vineyard can still be found near the entrance.
