A document reflecting compliance requirements for wineries/farm wineries in NYS was issued by the SLA in early 2013, prior to the creation of the Farm Cidery license class. It should not be used as the final word on compliance, but is a good jumping off point for questions you may have around laws and regulations. We are working with the SLA to obtain an updated guide inclusive of the Farm Cidery class and all the legislative updates that have occurred in the past four years.

Cornell Hard Cider Resources is a website hosted by the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences in conjunction with Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Hard Cider Program Work Team (PWT). The purpose of this website is to support a discussion about hard cider research and production. While much of the information presented within its pages is centered around the work being conducted at Cornell, it is the intention of the site to aid in the global exchange of knowledge among the entire hard cider community and the public.

Northwest Cider Association Cidermaker's Tool Kit is living, breathing, wiki page that is intended to capture the skills, tips, and links for all things related to running a professional cider business.
