Taproom

Due to COVID-19, our Taproom is closed for the foreseeable future. We will be announcing the location of our next pop-up store shortly.

Sorry! We stopped our pop-up at Williams Tree Service for the season due to, well, you all know what we are up against in the world these days. But if you need a Christmas tree or other greens for the season, check out Williams, located at 13830 Lee Hwy (U.S. Rt. 211, at Ben Venue). They also have apples from Williams Orchard and a variety of local meats, preserves and other goodies.

Saturday Nov 21st was the last day for our pop-up store at Thornton River Orchard & Market.
Thank you to the wonderful people at Thornton River
