The Butler Family announces with great sadness the passing of Susan Butler. After beating the odds for years, she ultimately lost her fight with cancer.

Susan was born and raised @butlersorchard and devoted her life to agriculture in Montgomery County.

As a 2nd generation owner of Butler’s Orchard, Susan built the framework for what can be seen and enjoyed by their many visitors today.

She mentored generations of employees and brought memories & fresh produce to many farm customers.

Susan retired from Butler’s Orchard and she and her husband, Washington, opened @watersorchard and Doc Waters Cidery.

Susan was a very kind and generous soul. She provided love, care, opportunity, and inspiration to so many. She will be dearly missed.

Doc Waters Cidery at Waters Orchard

Just down the road from the Waters Orchard entrance, you can find Doc Waters Cidery. Our hard cider is made from our own apples, grown and pressed right here on the farm. After many years of making cider for personal use and a long planning and permitting process, we pressed the first juice in the new cidery in 2017 and after fermenting and aging it, we made it available to the public in the fall of 2018. Seating is outdoors on the porch so dress to enjoy the spring weather. We will be serving cider by the glass or purchase a growler to take home. In addition to the still and carbonated versions of our Orchard Blend, we will have a rotating selection of small batch ciders available including hot mulled cider if the weather is chilly.
