Introducing Shephard's Hard Cyder

What started as a way to bring apples from the farm to market turned into a true passion for hard cider. The knowledge gained from English cider makers, English cider yeasts and fruit from WI and around the world combine to bring real, old world cider to Wisconsin. Permaculture guru Mark Shepard serves as the Master Cider Maker in a cidery located on New Forest Farm. Our goal is to produce the highest quality, interesting cider we can.

Our hope is that our success will cause abandoned orchards to come back to life and dreams of others to reality bringing strength and sustainability to rural economies.
