Before there was Old Hill Cider - long before! - there was Showalter's Orchard. An institution in the Shenandoah Valley, Showalter's Orchard and Greenhouse has been in business since 1965.

After growing up on the orchard, Shannon and his wife Sarah Showalter purchased the orchard from Shannon’s father in 2002, and then kicked off the cidery some years later. For the Showalter’s, creating Old Hill was much more than just producing the hard cider; they are working to revive an American tradition crafting ciders in innovative ways reminiscent of the early American cidermakers.

They continue to sell apples, but work toward adding more products and services to their home-grown operation. At this writing, the Showalters are selling five cider styles, ranging from the sweet "sippin'" cider many are most familiar with, to the more serious, dryer wine-like cider, to Season's Finish, an ice-style dessert cider that pairs beautifully with crumbly cheeses.
