Named for the style of traditional cider press we use to produce all of our juice, the Rack & Cloth cidery was founded in 2012 in Mosier, OR. Use of a small press allows for the attention to detail–including hand-sorting of fruit–that we believe is essential to creating a high quality artisanal beverage.
The cidery operates as a component of a larger vision: a small but diverse farming operation. Creating a system wherein we can showcase our agricultural products while increasing tilth and feeding our farm is a guiding principle of Rack & Cloth. All the apple pomace from our pressing is used as feed for our livestock; they in turn fertilize our orchard. Happy animals make for happy trees, happy trees make good fruit, and good fruit makes good cider!
