A Great Glass of Ciders (and You Can Take it Home!)

SATURDAY’S FIRST-EVER SPRING CIDER SOCIAL will bring together the magnificent orchard in bloom; crisp, locally grown apples; impressive guest speakers; and some of the finest hard ciders produced in New Hampshire! 

People attending the Social’s cider garden will also take away a beautiful commemorative glass that shows their support for the proposed New England Museum of Apples and Cider.

Sponsored by New England Apple Association with support from the New Hampshire Department of Agriculture, Markets and Food, the museum would permanently enshrine New England’s seminal history as an apple-growing region and its national leadership in the current explosion of interest in ciders.

This is no small token! Cider Garden attendees will take home a beautiful, 10-ounce Belgian beer glass decorated with the New England Apples logo.

So spend a lovely day in an apple orchard Saturday, May 13, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Butternut Farm, Farmington, New Hampshire.

General admission is free but pre-registration is recommended. Tickets to either of two Cider Garden sessions (seating is limited!) can be purchased at Spring Cider Social.

In addition to apples, ciders, and presentations about ciders and the contemporary orchard, there will be food, agricultural vendors, and a tour of the orchard.

Come join us for a very special day to learn about how cider is made and apples are grown, and taste the delicious fruits of the season while supporting New England’s apple growers and cider makers.
