Hear From Our Members


Hi cider friends. My name is Jamie Pratt and I am co-owner of Liberty Ciderworks in Spokane, Washington. At Liberty we work with local orchards to make delicious apple driven ciders using sustainable methods. Back in 2016 we joined the American Cider Association as members, and since then we have found value in many of the benefits the ACA has provided, including the Certified Cider Professional program. We find this program especially valuable because its purpose is to elevate the drink industry’s understanding of cider and particularly the type of cider we produce. We are really looking forward to the growth of this program and appreciate that is purposely inclusive of small orchard inspired cideries like ours.


Hi everyone. This is Nicole coming to you from Michigan. At our orchard we grow over 1000 different varieties of apples on about 14 acres of trees, so that in itself comes with its own challenges, but I also came into this organization with no cidermaking background, no farming background, so it’s been a lot of learning as you go. What I’ve appreciated most about the ACA is any opportunity to connect with people, so programs like CiderCon and through that even my introduction to Pomme Boots, which is a female focused organization, has just allowed me to connect with so many people and ask questions in forums where I feel like they really understand where I’m coming from. They welcome all these questions with open arms. We’re super small. At this point it’s just my husband and I running what used to be a family business and so anyone I work with or partner with I need to feel like they’re a team member, I need to feel like they’re pulling their weight. I need to feel like they support me. I need to feel like they’re doing work that benefits me, even if on a day to day basis I’m not seeing that work. That’s one of the things I appreciate the most about the ACA.
