Join us for an extra-special, adults only evening of apple picking paired with a guided tasting of our most exclusive farmcrafted hard ciders.
Meet at the U-Pick Apple Shed (located near the Cider Mill), where you will load onto a tractor ride out to our beautiful orchard to be greeted by our Orchard Hosts with your first pour of cider. Pick honeycrisp apples and enjoy an at-your-own-pace guided tasting of our hard ciders, including our brand new Nebraska Heirloom cider and our 2022 Harvest Honeycrisp cider. Learn about Vala’s orchard facts and history, relax around the communal fire pit, play corn hole, and stroll the beautiful orchard at sunset.
