Next Meeting

Thursday, November 19, 2015 7 to 9pm

Frontier Senior Center
67 North Main Street
Deerfield, MA 01373
Topic: Making Mead

This month, Rick Intres will demonstrate a craft that has been passed down by New Englanders from generation to generation. It is a craft that has gained a renewed interest by the general public – that being the delicious New England favorite – hard cider. Rick’s take on this popular beverage is to make it with honey (of course). With the addition of honey, his libation is a special type of mead, called Cyser. Come find out about Rick’s newest business, Bear Meadow Cidery, and how you can make your own mead, with or without the addition of apples.


Meeting is open to all members of Franklin County Beekeepers Association and anyone interested in learning about beekeeping.
