America's Hard-Cider Boom Has One Problem: Not Enough Apples

I was excited to make my debut on Modern Farmer—the stylish, of-the-moment magazine for people who care where their food comes from—with this story about the U.S. cider boom’s missing ingredient: apples. Tasting cider and nerding out about apples at an orchard in rural Oregon was one of those moments where I can’t believe I get paid to do this. And this is turning out to be one of those stories that begets other stories, so hopefully, this won’t be the last cider writing I do.
