Tom Hansen grew up in and still resides in New York State’s Hudson Valley, surrounded by farmland and natural beauty. It wasn’t until he started working at the Angry Orchard Cider House in 2021, that he truly discovered how to share his love for the Hudson Valley. As it turns out, the Hudson Valley’s Cider Industry was the catalyst that combined his passion for craft beverage, agriculture, and the community that Tom had been looking for. At Angry Orchard, Tom has the opportunity to work within the tour and experiential world of hospitality, while also educating guests about cider and the progression of the cider category. Cider is a natural fit for Tom’s skill set, and he fell in love with the world surrounding it almost immediately.
