Hang out with Kirk and taste 3 Virginia ciders! Free and open to everyone!

Kirk was born and raised in the community of Highland County, Virginia. His parents owned a house just outside the town limits of Monterey surrounded by 10 majestic old apple trees. Trees with names like Smokehouse, Winesap, Grimes Golden, among others. Kirk took these apples and the cider that was made from these apples for granted until picking up a couple of gallons of fresh sweet cider on the way back home from college one October. The bland juice, which was unlike any fresh-squeezed juice he grew up with, inspired Kirk to find out what the difference was, and started what became a lifelong passion for apples, including grafting trees, exploring for wild trees, making sweet cider, and finally fermentation of hard cider.

Kirk has taught many classes on grafting, pruning, cidermaking, and is himself a lifelong student of the apple. Big Fish Cider Company was born out of his passion of apples and his never-ending search for knowledge about apples.
