Producer Al and Denise Snape started the business in September 2013 in Salem, Massachusetts. Far From The Tree began fermenting apples in January 2014 and released their first cider in mid-May 2014. Although they ve only been in business a short time, the business has been brewing for years.

Far From The Tree operates in the unheated cellar of a building that they share with their landlord, who runs a marine construction company. The entire back section of the cellar contains an abandoned walk in freezer. Oak barrels fill the front and back sections of the room. It is, Al notes, perfect for them. It s wonderfully designed to hold a constant temperature.  Cider, much like white wine, needs to be kept under 60 degrees and maintain a very steady temperature as it ages. With the insulation provided by the abandoned walk in freezer unit we can very easily do this with little to no energy. I would not be able to make this cider in a conventional space without a massive investment in temperature control.

Far From The Tree's cider bears no resemblance to large mass produced hard ciders. It is not super sweet, but rather dry and refreshing with light carbonation, and tastes deliciously of apples. That s because the first ingredient in each of the company's three current varieties is, in fact, pressed apples. The company gets its apples October through April from orchards in central Massachusetts. The apples then go to a cider mill in Stow to be pressed. The same day, the fresh juice is brought to Far From The Tree's Salem cellar, where it is pumped into oak barrels to begin the fermentation process.

Far From The Tree originally started with three varieties of its dry ciders: Roots, Rind and Sprig. Since opening their tasting room in August 2015 the cider makers have made dozens of new ciders. We hope you enjoy them!
