Vermont Terroir Cider: A Moment in Time

Mary Morton of Eden Specialty Ciders

A short film about Vermont cider makers using wild and heirloom fruit

In Vermont, a handful of cideries use wild-foraged and heirloom apples to yield ciders that speak of place. In late 2019, videographer Johannes Kroemer and I visited a half a dozen of these makers to create this short film about their work. Enjoy.

    That whole film is so beautiful! Not only is it informational, but beautifully photographed – a work of art! I am so proud of you and your associates for making this beautiful film!

    This is an award-winning video. It is informative and beautiful – in both style and images. It is also well edited. Bravo to you and Johannes. You have created a fabulous piece of work.

    That was a lovely few minutes. I wish it was much longer, because I really want to hear more from all of the people in the film. Beautiful work.

      David, thank you. We’d love to make this into a longer film, and have enough material for it, but we were self-financing so had to keep this version short. We’d love to find a sponsor to support a longer production.

    The film was beautiful to look at and hear, but beyond that, even though I knew the experience was only sight and sound, it felt as though I could also smell, taste and touch. Amazing!

    This is gorgeous! We have a team making wild cider here in Charlottesville that I’ve not yet had a chance to visit but I’m even more excited now to go try them out. Thanks for sharing.
