This panel draws upon the Glynwood Center for Food and Farming's experience enlivening a historic apple region, the Hudson Valley of New York, incubating a state-wide trade association for the (hard) cider industry, and developing an international exchange program around cider. Join panelists from the UK, Japan and the US as they discuss their work in cider promotion as an example of how distinctive, value-added products support the viability of farming and evoke a local food culture and sense of place that is closely tied to agriculture. Learn how collaborative models in each country connect the public and trade professionals to farm-based cider producers, leading to increased public awareness and appreciation.
