Cider Tasting and Orchard Walk

Oct 16 Sun @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

 Join us at Arrowhead on a crisp fall afternoon to celebrate the history of cider-making in Berkshire County.  During this walk you will learn about BCHS’s new orchard and partnership with the Berkshire Cider Project.
You will walk through the seedlings with orchardist Keegan Schelling and learn about the heirloom apple varieties, expected yields, and grafting practices utilized in the project.
Kat Hand and Matt Brogan, owners of  the Berkshire Cider Project, will be on hand with a tasting of their ciders,  and to discuss what they have in store for Berkshire County apples and specifically, plans for following in  Herman Melville’s cider-making footsteps with Arrowhead’s orchards. 

This event is FREE, but registration is required – 413 442 1793 or melville@berkshirehistory.org
