This past weekend we had the opportunity to showcase our Homestead Cider at the Slow Foods Show at the New Amsterdam Market and Jimmy's No.43. We'd like to thank:
-Branka Ruzak, for her work orchestrating the event and for her constant watch during the two-day stretch.
-Robert Lavalva, and to all at N.A.M, the city's best market.
-Sara Grady, who spotted this opportunity for us and put the wheels in motion.
-Jimmy's No.43, not just for hosting Saturday, but for promoting cider year-round.
-Our fellow vendors, for their professionalism and enthusiasm.
-And to all who sampled! I'm amazed at the cider-savvy out there, sharing our drink with you has made the entire year's farm and cellar work worth while.
So you know: Betting the farm on cider, our only product, has been a leap of faith rather then a sound business decision. Though we navigate blindly, our goal is still to find you and share our brand of historic, farm-centric cider with today's cider culture. Since we live on a farm, mostly isolated from the people we seek to serve, this past weekend has meant a great deal to us. It was like coming out of a long dark tunnel into the glory of light. Truly, thanks.
