Join us Thursday, September 1st 5-7pm
Autumn founded Eve’s Cidery with her waitressing savings when she was 21 as a way to prune apple trees for a living. She does get to be a pruner, but also a plumber, an accountant, a tractor operator and a tank cleaner among other jobs. As a child, Autumn grew up immersed in painting, drawing and making art. As a young adult, she became enamored with the hard yet meaningful work of sustainable farming. For Autumn, growing apples and making them into cider is the intersection of creativity and labor. And it’s theses two ideals that motivate her work: To make beautiful cider and to farm in harmony with nature.
Since that time she has been messing around at that intersection of farming, micro-biology and art, thrilled to be joined in collaboration with her husband Ezra Sheman and seventh generation orchardist James Cummins. She is lucky to be surrounded by a generous community of winemakers, apple growers and nurserymen who have always answered her questions about weird tasting cider and dying apple trees. Shortly after the birth of her first child, Autumn decided to move the orchard into organic production, an uncommon move for an East Coast grower, and an ongoing and thrilling project. She has also devoted a significant amount of her time over the past several years to fighting fracking in New York State. Recently, she and a few other dedicated people have been working to form the nascent New York Cider Association whose mission is to repopulate the state with thriving orchards growing cider apples for a world class cider industry.
