Chinchiolo Family Farms is a certified organic fourth-generation California farm located in San Joaquin County. They focus on fresh produce including apples, cherries, and some value-added products like Far West Cider. 


Far West Cider offers dry, orchard-blend hard ciders made with apples sourced from the family farm. All of their apples and sometimes other fruit are harvested and pressed into juice on their own 100-year-old ranch. The juice is then cared for throughout fermentation, cellaring, and bottling at Far West Cider’s cidery on the water-front in the city of Richmond, California.

Fun Fact

Far West Cider’s products can be found in bars, restaurants, and retailers from Santa Cruz to Napa County.
