We are very passionate about cider, beer, wine and hospitality, and are looking to build and grow a team who will become central to our success at City Orchard!

City Orchard is the creation of local cidermakers, Mat Smith, Clay Watson, and Patrick Kwiatkowski, City Orchard produces hard ciders in Houston from the highest quality, personally selected cider apples from the Great Lakes Region.

Originally from New York and Michigan, since 2000 Smith and Kwiatkowski have called Houston their adopted home. Mat's family orchards are on the shores of Sodus Bay on Lake Ontario and City Orchard's fruit is currently sourced from the Smith Brothers Farm or nearby friends and neighboring farms. City Orchard hand selects apples, brings them down to Houston and creates the wonderful cider that Great Lakes apples make.

An urban cidery is just like one among the orchard - the apples just sneak in on a truck. Although City Orchard has deep roots in Great Lakes Apple Country, City Orchard is an orchard in the city and this is HTX-made cider!
