Episode 39 – Ben Wenk – Ploughman Cider

This episode features Ben Wenk of Ploughman Cider   “Greetings From Adams County”.  Ben’s family has been farming the land here since the 1820’s.  After selling produce at a farmers market in Philadelphia, Ben decided to try a Strongbow.  It was different.  Not sticky sweet like other ciders.  He went home and tried making his first batch of cider.  From there he was hooked.  Adams County is considered Apple Capital USA.  On this episode Ben and I discuss cider, apples and fruit tree farming.  “Cider is not a value added product”, Ben explains.  We enjoyed this fascinating look into Ben’s families heritage and his passion for cider making.
