Tangy, complex, and sweet, our Purple Granny Elderberry Fire Cider is apple cider vinegar infused with elderberries, honey, and 6 super root vegetables grown here at the farm. With all ingredients in balance, you'll taste a complex, invigorating and exciting burst of flavor.

Purple Granny gets its name from the infused elderberries ("purple") and the Granny Smith variety of apple used to create the vinegar base ("granny"). Fire Cider is a traditional plant-based vinegar tonic with many decades of history here in the US. During the 2010s, Shire City Herbals made, and widely distributed, their version of Fire Cider in an amber bottle with a hand-drawn kraft brown label.

We draw on these influences, and our own New England farm's produce, to create this super food, slowly fermenting the ingredients. It takes multiple years to bring a batch to you. The ingredients are (all organic and raw):

Apple Cider Vinegar, Honey, Elderberries, Ginger, Turmeric, Horseradish, Onion, Garlic, Hot Peppers.


- Certified Organic

- Slowly and naturally fermented and infused

- Traditional functional food of the United States and beyond

- Balanced burst of flavor useful in many recipes

Ways to Use Purple Granny:

- as a straight shot in a wellness routine

- as a salad dressing

- as a mixer in a mocktail or cocktail, or simply added to a juice or seltzer

- drizzled on roasted vegetables, especially potatoes

- as a replacement for vinegar in sauce recipes, including barbeque sauce, ketchups and salsas

What Makes Purple Granny Unique:

We only include ingredients which we can grow. This reduces our carbon footprint and increases our control over the ingredients. We took three years to develop our technique and recipe, starting with the Granny Smith apple cider, fermenting it to the perfect vinegar, growing the vegetables, and creating a food-safe, alive and rich food which tastes fantastic.

Fat Stone Farm

Minimum $35
Lyme, CT
All year round since 2004, we -- Bill and Liz Farrell -- work the dirt at Fat Stone Farm in Lyme, Connecticut. Sure, it’s frozen dirt in the winter, but that’s the time for maple sugaring! Our unique farm products are made with heritage New England ingredients, sometimes with an updated twist. If we can't grow it, we won't put it in our products. That's why we say "eat food from the dirt, not the lab". We named our farm “Fat Stone” partly to poke fun at ourselves, partly to make people remember us, and partly to remind us to laugh sometimes! Liz drew the stone walls depicted on our labels from the walls we built on the property – entirely with our very own fat stones. Some of these walls are simply extensions of the old field walls built by previous farmers. Regenerative farming can improve ourselves and our communities After starting our farm and growing our food for a few seasons, we felt better, stronger, and more resilient. We extend this commitment to you, our customers, by only growing and producing the best foods that we ourselves eat every day. Small business -- Big commitment During much of the year, there are 3 of us making, bottling, labelling, and sending farm products to you. Some months we are fortunate to spread the work out between more of us. Meet the crew: Liz. Grew up in Maryland, loves New England. Knits from time to time. Favorite activity on the farm: harvesting! Especially root crops because it's always a surprise what she finds growing under the dirt. Dave. Grew up in Connecticut, is an expert tree feller and knows his way around just about any engine or machine. Favorite activity on the farm: setting up new maple sap lines (although he wishes it was October when he does this, not January). Bill. Grew up in Connecticut, earned a Business Degree and knows his way around a P&L statement. Favorite activity on the farm: moving animals to new pasture.
