Apple House

Cidery in Southeastern Ohio

The Hocking Hills are prime fruit-growing territory thanks to super-fertile soil, and three generations of the family-owned Laurelville Fruit Farm have made a name for themselves here with fresh fruit and cider. More than 20 varieties of apples – including Melrose, Ohio’s state apple – three different kinds of peaches and cherries are sold in season.

Cider slushies were introduced in 1980 – pure apple cider, ice and nothing else.
