About the program:

New York is the second largest producer of apples in the U.S., and the growing popularity of hard cider is bringing new opportunities to orchards. In celebration of Cider Week NY, Food Day 2013, and the Big Apple Crunch campaign, this panel discussion will explore how hard cider production offers growers economic opportunities, revives "cider apple varieties," and brings new possibilities for sustainable practices. The apple is our iconic NY fruit and hard cider is giving it a brighter future, thanks in large part to the thirst of NYC.

This panel will be moderated by Sara Grady, Vice President of Programming at Glynwood and founder of the Apple Project and Cider Week, joined by four of the leading NY apple growers and craft cider producers:

Tim Dressel, Kettleborough Ciderhouse & Dressel Orchards
Elizabeth Ryan, Hudson Valley Farmhouse Cider & Breezy Hill Orchards
Dan Wilson, Slyboro Ciderhouse & Hicks Orchard
