Named for the style of traditional cider press used to produce all of their juice, the Rack & Cloth cidery was founded in 2012 in Mosier, Oregon. The use of a small press allows for the attention to detail–including hand-sorting of fruit–that they 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 they can showcase their agricultural products while increasing tilth and feeding their farm is a guiding principle of Rack & Cloth. All the apple pomace from the pressing is used as feed for their livestock; the livestock in turn fertilize their orchard. Happy animals make for happy trees, happy trees make good fruit, and good fruit makes good cider!
