The Bad Seed Cidery Tap room in High­land NY offers an afford­able venue space and open bar at a work­ing farm and tast­ing room. (Pho­tos by Due­tim­age Pho­tog­ra­phy Hud­son Val­ley wed­ding pho­tog­ra­phers).

City  slick­ers might know the Bad Seed Hard Cider brand from Whole Foods Mar­ket, the Park Slope Co-op, and a num­ber of pop­u­lar bars through­out the bor­oughs.  Hud­son Val­ley res­i­dents might know Bad Seed as an off­shoot of the well-known Wilk­low Orchards where fam­i­lies can pick apples and buy fresh cider dur­ing the fall. And if you’re a DIY bride you might be inter­est­ed to know that Bad Seed’s orchard and tap room in High­land, NY, is avail­able for your wed­ding in a farm set­ting with free flow­ing hard cider at a rea­son­able price.

The tap room can be found off a qui­et coun­try road that opens up onto a por­tion of the Wilk­low orchard and vine­yard.  From Sep­tem­ber through Octo­ber, the tap room is open for tours and tast­ings of the brand’s hard cider, pro­duced with tra­di­tion­al meth­ods and mod­ern craft beer tech­niques.  But dur­ing spring and sum­mer, the tap room is open for wed­dings that can take place indoors and out on the prop­er­ty.

Before events though, the space is cleared for rental fur­ni­ture and decor which can be set up as art­ful­ly as you wish.

Din­ner is served on the ground floor nes­tled in among the shiny cider tanks, with a bar only a few steps away from the set­up.  There is also a bar on the upper lev­el where guests can amble about and take a break from the action.

Straight out through the large garage doors of the tap room is an out­door seat­ing area with pic­nic tables offer­ing a view of the cer­e­mo­ny area in the adja­cent orchard and vine­yard.

Devin Brit­ton, a co-own­er of Bad Seed, says that although the venue is very pop­u­lar with DIY brides, they have host­ed events that were ful­ly coor­di­nat­ed by local event plan­ners.  “We’ve had brides that have done every­thing them­selves and the fam­i­lies pro­vid­ed the cook­ing, and we’ve had events that were very elab­o­rate and ful­ly catered with tents.  If a bride wants the cater­ing and the plan­ning to be done for her, we are hap­py to refer them to local ven­dors.”
