“Cider Week Finger Lakes is known for creating connections across the region between cider makers and apple growers to craft beverage and farm-to-table enthusiasts. As we continue to make sure everyone stays safe and healthy, we’re looking forward to a much needed safe and socially distanced celebration over cider,” says Scott Ramsey, Executive Director of the New York Cider Association.
As a presenting sponsor, Glynwood’s Director of Regional Food Programming, Megan Larmer, says, “Glynwood is proud of its continuing support of the New York Cider Association and Cider Weeks across New York. We’re looking forward to seeing what’s possible with this hybrid version of Cider Week Finger Lakes 2020, and excited for both in-person and online experiences that bring you closer to our iconic orchards and the world class cider they produce!”

Most importantly, the New York Cider Association is donating 20% of proceeds donated to the Restaurant Workers Community Foundation focused on Covid-19 relief and issues of Social Justice.
