Botanist & Barrel
North Carolina, USA
Cedar Grove, NC is a quaint little township just north of Hillsborough. It’s a farming community that once focused on tobacco, but is slowly shifting to fruits and veggies, especially apples and blueberries. On Cedar Grove Blueberry Farm is Botanist and Barrel, a farmhouse cider and winery focused on natural ciders and wines. As certified organic farmers, we value quality over quantity. Similar to world-class viticulture for wines, we farm for flavor by dry-farming. To highlight the true terroir of the farm, we capture the wild yeasts from the bloom of the blueberries and ferment some of our beverages with native yeast.
