Living History Talk: Living History Talk: A Drink When We Want It and a Cup for a Thirsty Travel

November 9 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Free
Stanley-Whitman House, 37 High Street
Farmington, 06032


What today is understood by “apple cider” is not the same as cider during the 18th and 19th century. The closest product to what is called cider today is sweet cider or the “must” of the mill. What was meant by “cider” is what is usually referred to today as hard cider. Cider was considered the normal drink in New England, to be consumed at every meal. The basic method of making cider is relatively simple and because it is, as one writer in the Early 1800s pointed out, so much could go wrong. Come hear about the mills, machinery, and products of New England’s cider making tradition. The presentation is approximately 45 minutes followed by a 15-minute question and answer period all totaling a one-hour program in duration.

The admission is free, but we welcome donations to support the Museum’s cultural and educational virtual programming during the COVID-19 crisis.
