Don’t miss the hard cider tasting at the Chalet at MASS MoCA on August 28 from 6:30–8:00 p.m. that features SIX local cider growers/fermentors.
On this, our first episode of “Plenty,” Pete Mitchell of Headwater Cider in Hawley, Mass., joins us to discuss the process of making hard cider, from selection of apple varieties to the bottling process. Also, we are joined by Jen Williams of Bear Swamp Orchard in Ashfield, Mass., who discusses their choice to offer organic cider (both sweet and hard). Robert Martell, from Hilltop Orchards and Furnacebrook Winery in Richmond, Mass., describes cider and wine, but also some of the recreational opportunities available on the farm operated by the Vittori family.
