Description
 
Located in beautiful Adams County, Pennsylvania, Three Springs Fruit Farm is a family-operated farm that brings fresh tree fruit, berries, tomatoes, vegetables, and products made with them to markets all over the Mid-Atlantic. Founded in 1901, Three Springs Fruit Farm is recognized by Food Alliance as among the best in their field for their commitment to progressive, sustainable growing practices and land management. Recently, seventh generation 3 Springs farmer Ben Wenk began using his apples to create small batches of dry cider which he sold at local farmers markets, and from these humble beginnings Ploughman Cider was born. Ploughman is now available at over a dozen Philadelphia restaurants and is sold at Di Bruno Bros.’ Bottle Shop. This March, Ben is pairing up with local cheesemaker Jamie Png for an interactive cider and cheese pairing session. Led by Ben, guests will get to try their hand at blending cider bases with “component ingredients” that are used in the creation of Ploughman Cider varieties. Then guests will compare their blends with Ploughman’s, including Dornick, Aptest Eve (an unreleased British-inspired cider), Distlefunk (peach sour cider) and Bluebird Day (peach/cider blend). As you play cidermaker, Jamie will offer cheese pairing expertise with four cheese selections, complemented by Three Springs apples and jams and other accoutrements.
