First Saturday of Every Month, Cider tastings at Norumbega Cidery, next to RRCT's Big Falls Preserve

Norumbega Cidery was founded in 2013 with the mission to rediscover past traditions and make a contribution to the present and future of the local and regional hard cider landscape. Each tasting will be accompanied with live music by Ronda Dale & Friends and a food truck. Norumbega is adjacent to RRCT’s new Big Falls Preserve. GPS Address: 380 Woodman Rd, New Gloucester ME.  The Big Falls Preserve is the perfect place for an afternoon stroll through the woods after good food, drink and music.
