Two Spots Left for This Coming Weekend's
Backyard Orchards and Homemade Cider Workshop!
He agreed to that too, and is coming to Cold Antler Farm on August 10th to talk about keeping a productive backyard orchard. He will cover the work, species, pruning and basic care and feeding of fruit trees and take you for a walk through the woods and pastures here to see trees in various states of productivity. He will address your questions and help anyone thinking about backyard forestry or orcharding start out in the right direction. This is a wonderful opportunity for anyone interested in agriculture a little different than vegetables and animals, and a fun time to talk about home brewing, too!
In the afternoon we will talk about home brewing and making your own fresh and hard ciders. For those of you not ready to buy a lot of land but are able to plant a few dwarf trees in the backyard and get a small fruit press - this is a way to turn your backyard fruit into a value added and delicious product! Hard cider is wonderful for barter, cooking, or enjoying by the campfire. It is an annual fall tradition here at Cold Antler and much looked forward to! Come see what all the fuss is about.
Note: we will not be brewing cider or working in a kitchen, but we will be talking about it, i'll cover my recipe and review supplies and the process. Bring a notebook!
This will be a small workshop and a fundraiser here for Cold Antler. It is August 10th from 10AM-5PM and will be $100 a person. Only a few people will be attending besides Brett and Myself and two of those spots already just sold thanks to a preview of the idea on Facebook last night.
