It's hard to imagine a more Hudson Valley cider than Bad Seed. When Albert and Devin started to make their ciders, they began a journey of making cider using apples from a farm that Albert's family has owned--Wilklow Orchards--for six generations. Six! That's a pretty strong Hudson Valley pedigree.

So when you're drinking Bad Seed, you're drinking a little bit of Hudson Valley heritage. And you're drinking a delicious, unique cider. Devin stopped by to talk about not only the cider and the history, but also a really fun event that they've got planned for Fourth of July weekend that you're absolutely going to want to check out.

Now for a virtual tour of the cidery:
