Big Hill Ciderworks


Here at Big Hill, we grow, press and ferment our ciders on site.  We aren’t working with concentrates or “natural flavorings.”  Our cider is a locally grown and hand crafted product.



Summer Scrumpy is a light-bodied, refreshing cider.  We’ve blended hard cider with fresh apple cider to give a little hint of sweetness and a great natural apple aroma.  This summer seasonal is an off-dry cider that is perfect if you’re looking for something “not too sweet” and also allows you to come back for another.



Our Barrel Aged Reserve Cider is a unique blend of traditional cider apples fermented and aged in whiskey and brandy barrels.  These varieties provide a bright acidity and natural sugars that blend with an oak finish to yield a complex yet well balanced cider.


Big Hill is located in the heart of Apple Country along the South Mountain: a northern extension of the Blue Ridge Mountains.  Our facilities are just north of historic Gettysburg and only a few miles away from the Appalachian Trail.

The area is known for it’s unique microclimate and soil types that cater perfectly to apple production. We are home to some of the best apples in the country.

Big Hill was founded by Troy and Ben, two independent farmers looking to make darn good ciders.  Big Hill began in the Spring of 2013 when we poured concrete in what is now our Ciderworks building.  At this time, we offer sales by appointment only, please contact us if you would like to come out and visit.  We look forward to expanding our operation to an on site tasting room so that you all can come by and visit us one day.  Until then, we hope you enjoy our cider at your local pub.
