Angry Orchard Breaks Ground on Expansion

Angry Orchard Cider Co. officially broke ground on construction of its new cidery, tasting room and hard cider research-and-development center, at its 60-acre apple orchard in the village of Walden, Orange County. 

State Department of Agriculture and Markets Commissioner Richard A. Ball joined Angry Orchard and local and community leaders in raising a glass in celebration of the new facility.

“New York state has an abundance and variety of both apples and ingenuity, and with the Mid-Hudson’s cluster of wineries, breweries, and cideries, I can think of no better place for Angry Orchard to grow,” said Empire State Development President, Chief Executive and Commissioner Howard Zemsky.

First launched in 2012, Angry Orchard is the number-one selling hard cider in the US, where cider consumption has nearly quintupled since 2010.
