Posterity Ciderworks produces cider in Mokelumne Hill, a small town within Calaveras County, California. This area is often called the Sierra Foothills or Gold Country and is known for its Jumping Frog Contest, the writers Mark Twain & Bret Harte, Historical Gold Mining, and Giant Sequoia groves.
Some of the unique fruit you’ll find in our ciders is grown on our family farm. We started planting our heritage apple and pear orchard in 2019 & chose to plant full-sized rootstocks -- uncommon in modern fruit agriculture due to the longer growing time until the trees yield fruit. We think they’re worth the wait, though, as these trees will ultimately outlive us and produce fruit & cider for several lifetimes.
Other fruit we use in our cider comes from a selection of orchards in the Sierra Foothills. We’ve met many wonderful people who’ve granted us access to their private estates, 150 year old homesteads, and solitary trees scattered throughout the region.
