BURLINGTON, Vt. — Let’s celebrate (hard) cider! It’s a great example of how distinctive, value-added products can support the viability of farming and evoke a local food culture and sense of place that is closely tied to agriculture.
The Glynwood Center for Food and Farming, based in the Hudson Valley of New York, enlivened this historic apple region by incubating a state-wide trade association for the cider industry and developing an international exchange program around cider.
Join panelists from the UK, Japan and the US as they discuss their work promoting cider. Learn how collaborative models in each country connect trade professionals and the public to farm-based cider producers, leading to increased public awareness and appreciation.
