'Cedar Draw Cider was created to build and strengthen our community, connecting old friends and new.
We believe in a true Public House (a “pub”), welcoming multiple generations and backgrounds to celebrate together over quality farm-to-table hard cider made with locally harvested fruit.'
--- John and Emily Mason
Old Fashioned Beginnings
Our roots began in 1908 when Mr. H. Harvey planted 200 acres of Italian plums in Buhl, ID. A century later just 3 acres remained when we bought his beautiful farm house to raise our family, where we learned the history of these heirloom plums and their market journey to Cedar Draw train station to be exported.
We honor this land's history and the old growth orchards available in our valley to create ciders as rich and special as the heritage of our land.
Emily and John started Cedar Draw Cider in 2018 on their 3 acre family orchard in Buhl, Idaho, when Emily, an oncology nurse for nearly 20 years, needed a creative outlet and stumbled upon the joys of cider making. We are proud to be an independent business, owned by a husband and wife team. Emily is the Cider Maker, fermenting and producing new varieties as her creative juices inspire her.
John manages the Tasting Room and develops sales and distribution relationships with restaurants, markets and breweries throughout Southern Idaho.
Spreading the Word
As a recognized member of the Northwest Cider Association, we enjoy showing people what a real cider should be. Our mission is to educate those new to cider drinking and to broaden their exposure to drier, more traditional ciders as well as modern fruit-forward, herbed, and unique blends. We always love the challenge of meeting someone who thinks they don’t like cider, because we have made many cider doubters into new cider fans!
Our Tasting Room carries 10 ciders on tap, 2 house made sodas, and 1 rotating local beer.
We sell bottles, growlers, and howlers (half-growlers) to go.
We are currently open three days a week and offers both indoor and outdoor seating.
