Taste Life on the Farm
Visit Finnriver and you will encounter a working farm and Cidery that welcomes guests to share in our life on the land. The fields may be furrowed, fruiting or frozen but, whatever the season, we will greet you gladly and invite you to become a friend of the farm. We want folks to help us revitalize our culture's commitment to sustainable family-scale agriculture. Thank you for your interest and we hope to see you here.
We welcome you to come visit! There are several ways to experience what we grow.
Open 7 days a week from 12:00-5:00. At the Finnriver Tasting Room, you can sip a sample and purchase our handcrafted sparkling hard ciders and spirited fruit wines. If we have our hands free, you can walk through the Cidery and we'll share what we know about the tradition and art of fruit fermentation. Self-guided walking tour of the land. $5 Tasting fee, waived with multiple bottle purchase. Check our calendar for special wine tours and other events.
PRIVATE EVENT VENUE: PAVILIOn & WOODFIRE PIZZA
With the new Finnriver pavilion and woodfire oven in place, we are glad to offer groups ranging from 10-100 the opportunity to host their rustic gatherings here on the land: private parties, retreats, classes or celebrations. If your group would appreciate the chance to spend time on a small, organic family farm and have a rural culinary and agricultural adventure in Spring, Summer or Fall, please contact us to discuss the options. Woodfire pizza catering is available via Dented Buoy Pizza. Contact us at email@example.com to discuss the possibilities.
Woodfire Pizza is served to the public on Sunday afternoons beginning in May and running through the early Fall. Please check our calendar to confirm dates. Pizza is first come, first served and it represents the authentic values of 'slow food' so prepare to relax and wait for your delicious pie while enjoying time on the farm.
For folks who want to make their nuptial toast with our unique Artisan Sparkling Cider, handcrafted in the méthode champenoise from organic Washington apples, we offer a 15% case discount for weddings. We would be honored for Finnriver to help celebrate your love! You can also contact us about scheduling a visit to the farm to see how we make the champagne for you!
For an extended taste of wholesome life on the farm, come stay at our neighbor's delightful rental cottage, the HUCKLEBERRY HOUSE!
Rubber boots encouraged! To learn about life on the land, you can walk the fields, amble in the orchards, check out the chickens, saunter down to the stream, and make buddies with the bees. The farm's bounty changes with each season and we invite you to explore. Self-guided farm tours on our Soil & Salmon Trail are an option year-round. Extended private tours can be booked privately for groups of 10 or more. Contact us for rates and reservations.
Finnriver Wheelbarrow Picnic
Bring your group to Finnriver, our Chimacum family farm & artisan cidery to get a taste of life on the land with a rustic-gourmet Wheelbarrow Picnic, enjoyed outside overlooking the green fields of Center Valley. Put on your boots, work up an appetite and come have a rural culinary adventure!
To have a Wheelbarrow Picnic at Finnriver, we work with the Chimacum Corner Farmstand to source your meal. The Farmstand is located three miles up the road from Finnriver and specializes in locally grown and crafted artisan foods.
We provide a menu of local goods available from the Farmstand that you can then select and assemble with your group to make a picnic-style meal that celebrates what is grown and produced on the Olympic Peninsula. You can either stop by the Corner Farmstand on your way to the farm and purchase your picnic there, or we can pre-order these goods for you and help you arrange payment. All of the items on this menu are pre-packaged foods for you to divvy up and enjoy together.The cost of your picnic is dependent on what you order from the Chimacum Corner Farmstand.Finnriver then adds a fee of $15 per person, which includes cider & wine tasting, as well as rustic picnic plates, napkins and cutlery, use of our picnic shelter and access to the lovely rural setting. Your group will also get 10% off any purchases you make in our tasting room.
Total cost of Wheelbarrow Picnics can range from $25-$40 per person depending on what you order from the Farmstand.
Keep in mind that that is a self-assembled picnic adventure served outside. You will, as a group, need to open the jars, cut the bread, and spread the cheese yourselves. Finnriver cannot do any "food prep" for you, although we will be here to welcome you heartily with a wheelbarrow of picnic goods, and offer your cider & wine tasting..
Celebrations & Farmstead Adventures
We seek to build healthy, joyful community here at the farm, as well as to revive agricultural traditions. Throughout the year we host seasonal celebrations such as our spring Orchard Blessing, the fall Jefferson County Farm Tour, and our summer music night and outdoor films at the "Wild Rose" Theater. View our event calendar to learn more.
Come visit the farm during the week of your birthday and you can also receive 10% off any select bottle from the Cidery.
