Hard Cider Production – Orcharding Short Course – PFI Annual Conference 2019

By Practical Farmers of Iowa

Prior to the PFI annual conference, we’ll have two short courses – one on silvopasture and one on orcharding. At the orcharding short course, presentations from growers will cover topics from orchard design and packhouses, to disease and pest management, to understory care for young trees, to hard cider production. Watch this sneak peek from Benji Deal of Deal’s Orchard near Jefferson, who will talk about hard cider production. The short course will be held January 17-18 at the Scheman Building in Ames prior to the conference. Learn more about the short course speakers at
