Getting the right blend or single variety juice to make the perfect cider is part of every business plan for cideries both in the startup phase an ongoing. If you are not growing your own orchard, getting apple juice could be a real constraint – Thus these chats with two juice suppliers.
While at CiderCon in February, I recorded two chats with suppliers of juice. I wanted to find out what is happening both in the US and globally.
- Are orchards seeing the current cider market vital enough to plant trees that produce cider apples?
- What are the steps one would have to take to get juice from orchard to your cidery whether it is located in a tucked away island or in the middle of a city?
I believe you will find the answers in this episode surprising. And may they charge you up enough to let your local orchards or large apple suppliers know that
“Yes we want cider apple juice!
What are the top 5-6 varieties grown in Washington State? or 85% of the market.
