Digging Deeper: Apples & Orchards—A Cider Party

Digging Deeper: Apples & Orchards—A Cider Party

Sat, Sep 14, 2019
3:00 PM

For almost twenty years, Janet Mavec and Wayne Nordberg have been hosting a cider party on their farm to celebrate the bounty of the land and their ancient orchard. These heirloom varieties are so old that an apple expert from Rutgers University was unable to identify them, but the family knows they are indescribably delicious. To help care for these treasures, Janet and Wayne work with Steve Zaikowski, a master cider maker and Licensed Tree Care Expert with something akin to a cult following. Spend an unforgettable afternoon with Janet and Steve to learn how to properly site, grow, and prune apple trees, as well as the best varieties to use in cider (and all of the other amazing edibles Janet makes). Then learn by doing, for it will be all hands on deck to make cider! Each guest will take home some of the fruits of their labor.

Advance registration is required and space is limited.
