This was a great find during our recent trip to the area. We stopped in to find good cider, good prices, and friendly staff.

We stopped at this farm on our way back from visiting the Omaha beach. The lady at the counter, very kindly, immediately offered a tasting of their products, cidre, pommeau and calvados. In the store there is all sort of local specialities, most made from...More
