Original Stump Blower
Original Stump Blower is an upstate NY craft ciderworks, owned and operated by siblings Elise Barnard and Eric Smith. The Original Stump Blower name pays homage to their father and late uncle. Back in the day they hid their homemade hard cider from Aunt Bobby in stumps. The phrase "let's go blow up some stumps" became code for backyard swilling because the cider was so strong it could blow up stumps. They make a variation of this cider in-house and think fond thoughts of Uncle Charlie every time they talk about it. They utilize New York apples, as well as other local ingredients to ferment tasty libations for locals and cider enthusiasts alike. In their gift shop, you will find goods that are printed by local companies and art made by talented people from the surrounding areas.
