Crafted on Old Mission Peninsula in Traverse City, Nomad Cider is made from 100% Northern Michigan apples. All of our apples and cherries are grown on Kroupa Farm and other farms on Old Mission Peninsula and travel less than 15 miles from orchard to press. Apple varietals include Courtland, Northern Spy, McIntosh, Baldwin, Greening, Ida Red and Red Delicious. All apples are harvested, pressed and crushed on-site here at Nomad. We use only fresh pressed apples, never concentrates or syrups, to create our hard ciders.
