Apple Farmers and Cider Makers Dinner
Union Hotel Restaurant & Cafe 3731 Main Street - Map
Slow Food Russian River invites you to a delicious Apple Farmers and Cider Makers Dinner and panel discussion at the Union Hotel in Occidental. Gaye LeBaron, famed county historian, writer and teacher will lead a panel of local farmers and cider makers in discussion about the history and future of the Sonoma County apple industry.
Change is coming to the Sonoma County apple industry, – after years of decline – through the emergence of a local craft cider industry. In the last odd five years we have counted over ten new craft cider makers in the region. The panel will address how the apple industry got where it is and what needs to be done to take advantage of this new demand for locally grown apples.
