Fun with Fieri

"Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives"

In the fall of 2013, Clendenen's Cider Works received a surprise call from Citizen Pictures to ask if they would like to be part of a Humboldt County filming of "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives," starring Ferndale native Guy Fieri. Of course they said yes, especially since, as an apple cider mill, they weren’t the usual Triple-D fare.

After lots of preparations, Guy drove up in his signature '68 Camaro on November 23, 2013. Drew and his dad Clif picked apples in the orchard and talked about the 100+ years of farm history. The camera crew had "lit" the cider press room to film Drew and Clif while they squeezed out some apple cider. Guy, in boots and apron, was a keen and humorous observer. We're looking forward to seeing the episode when it airs!

Schedule a Fall trip to Clendenen's Cider Works in Fortuna, California! We’re just south of Eureka in Humboldt County. Our season runs August through January, with peak apple harvest season in October and November. We’re open 7 days/week in season.

Due to the perishable nature of our fresh apple cider and apples, we're unable to ship them. We would love to have you visit!
