“As a wholesaler, I think we’re at a disadvantage in many ways, from labor, to market access, to geographic location, so I think that the hard cider industry presents an opportunity that I recognize as very special. I think that the hard cider companies in Vermont are very interested in seeing that opportunity expand.” -Barney Hodges, Owner, Sunrise Orchards.
