In honor of the Kingston Black, the “One Apple to Rule them All”, five cider makers from four states come together in the Apple Barn at Scott Farm Orchard to showcase their hard ciders—made with this highly-prized heirloom apple. Come to Scott Farm’s Apple Barn to talk with Scott Farm’s orchardist and the cider makers, learn about “bitter” cider apple varieties, and sample  six or more Kingston Black hard ciders, along with local food pairings. Meet Ben Watson, author of Cider Hard and Sweet, at the book signing. The festival features Eden Specialty Ciders, Newport VT; Farnum Hill Ciders, Lebanon NH; Slyboro Ciderhouse, Granville NY; Stormalong Ciders, Sherborn MA; and Whetstone Ciderworks, Marlboro NH. The event is co-hosted by Scott Farm and Eden Specialty Ciders. Register online at
