Hey cider fans and awesome East Oregon people! I just want to let you all know that Rain Barrel Ciderworks has closed down and will no longer be producing or selling cider. I started dreaming about having a cidery about 11 years ago, and thought I had a great opportunity to make it happen when I started making cider in Baker City in 2019. Little did I know that the following spring would see everything thrown into turmoil and chaos. As a result, I just never got the traction that I needed to keep it moving forward. I am VERY fortunate to have had the chance to make this attempt, and am grateful that, despite it not working out, I got out there and met a lot of wonderful people and was able to make some fun ciders. It’s only a failure if you don’t learn anything, and I learned a LOT. Thank you all for the chance, and I hope everyone has a safe and healthy new year!
