Cider Makers

We gather and share information about cider production, cider regulations, and cider apple growing to help our members improve their operations, raise cider awareness, and advance cider in the market.

We Our Members

Our annual CiderCon conference is only open to USACM members. This event is the premier education and learning event for the industry, both nationally and internationally. Registration opens in the fall.

We offer co-marketing discounts and supplies for our members. Examples include marketing materials for our holiday Pick Cider campaigns.

We advocate for cider at the federal level. Your membership translates to great benefits, like tax reductions with the passage of the CIDER Act.

We will be publishing our first annual white paper with cider industry statistics in time for CiderCon 2018. In the meantime, you can download a webinar with Nielsen about 2016 cider stats.
