Farnum Hill’s Boston Blitz, Help Needed
After some holiday time, traveling time and kid flapping time, I’m starting to get back into work mode.
We had a visit from charming Amanda, a Boston-area Bruins fan, wine blogger, and cider enthusiast this past Saturday. (She blogs at the Wineing Woman so check that out.) Jess and I walked her through some of the cider making process, showed her around the cider room, and poured ample samples in hopes that she’ll use some of her energy to help move the Massachusetts cider cause ahead with us.
If you’re already in Boston, look for relocated cider gnome Jess (pictured at work in the cider room last fall, with photo by Scott McIntyre) to be out and about working with our retailers and distributors. I’m sure you’ll see her at a sampling near you soon — with her trusty sidekick Oona if you’re lucky! She’s looking to get up to speed on the Boston drinks scene quickly, which thus far seems to involve going to lots of bars. Market research, I’m told.
We are also looking for a few good people to help us with samplings, trade shows, beer and wine events, and the like throughout New England. It’s a perfect job for a graduate student, foodie, or someone looking to supplement another part-time job. Nights and weekends are a must, as is Farnum Hill Cider love. The job description is right here for you to look at, and we’re hoping to get folks up to speed before fall hits.
More Poverty Lane and Farnum Hill news coming soon — including a recent visit to the orchard from Senator Jeanne Shaheen.
