Begun by Glenn’s parents Eleanor and Ed, our farm is now run by three generations of Cooks. The farm is a big piece of who we are, for none of us would be the same without the love, responsibility and stewardship it brings. All 145 acres is tended and cared for with an old-fashioned work ethic, combined with modern strategies that increase organic matter while decreasing our carbon footprint.
Cider Hill Farm began when Glenn’s parents Eleanor and Ed Cook purchased the Battis Farm in 1978. Three years later Glenn and his new bride Karen purchased the abutting Vedrani Farm, creating what is now a three generation family farm.
What we do at cider hill is cultivate, nurture, and grow relationships; growing good food is simply a by-product of this mission and the calling of our dedicated farm family.
