Finnriver Donations & Community Support
We want our work at Finnriver to enrich the community and we are eager to grow our capacity for generosity. At this time, as a very small, craft cidery operation, we do what we can to support our local and regional community. We are committed to making the land at Finnriver accessible as an education resource and to inspire reconnection to small-scale family farming that promotes ecological and cultural vitality.
Given the high number of request for donations, we have committed to supporting regional organizations who promote the well-being of people and the land, prioritizing those on the North Olympic Peninsula and occasionally extending into Puget Sound and greater Washington. We support education, but we focus on local schools and do not donate to schools beyond our own community at this time.
If you are seeking a donation, please go to bottom of this page and fill out the form. We will consider your request and get back to you as soon as we can! Thank you...

Finnriver FARMSTEAD TEN CENTS A BOTTLE Program
Each Fall, Finnriver invites residents across the north Olympic Peninsula to bring us their bins, boxes and buckets of backyard apples and we ferment this fruit into our Farmseatd Cider. In appreciation of the community spirit in this cider, we contribute .10 cents per bottle on all bottle sales of the Farmstead to the Jefferson County Food Bank Association. This way, all Farmstead purchases will support both small-scale family agriculture, and the vital work of our local food banks.
