Deirdre Birmingham, owner and manager of The Cider Farm in Mineral Point, Wisconsin, is hosting a free field day. Deirdre will share her farm vision and design of their 18-acre high-density orchard and then lead participants on a tour to introduce the ~20 different varieties of English and French apples she grows to make their delicious ciders and apple brandy. Learn how she organically manages these different apple varieties and the attributes of each that make them perfectly suited for cider and/or brandy.
