Big Deal for VT Cidermakers...Peter Mitchel Cider Course

Hi all, sorry for the late posting. The Vermont Grape and Wine Council
and Vermont Tree Fruit Growers Association in conjunction with the VT
Agency of Agriculture are sponsoring Peter Mitchell's Cider Making -
Principles & Practice <> course to
be offered in August 11-14. This is the intensive course is the premier
cider class in the US/UK. Peter runs these courses annually at Cornell
and Washington State University, as well as in England. This is a really
big thing to have him present here in Vermont, and I highly recommend
that anyone with an interest in cider who can swing the time attend.

Involving the world's leading experts in cider making and orcharding,
this course aims to provide you with:
A thorough grounding in the main principles and practices of orcharding
and cider and perry making, a wealth of knowledge, insight and technical
know-how, drawn from many years of practical experience, the skills,
knowledge and understanding necessary for the production of quality
cider and perry.
The course is suitable for beginners, new businesses and existing
producers (large & small-scale) alike.

Sorry about the late notice but we were
looking to fill it first with VGWC/VTFGA folks. At last notice there
were about ten slots left. Because of this industry sponsorship tuition
for the course is only $100. Please contact Steve Justis at VT Agency of
Ag for signups.
