Daylesford Cider & Pork Banquet
Daylesford Cider has been producing quality, handcrafted ciders on its Musk property for almost 15-years now using Heritage apples organically grown on the property.
Happy As A Pig In Cider is a great day learning a bit about both cider production and the responsible farming of pork while enjoying a wonderful lunch & drinks in the magnificent English style tavern that is Daylesford Cider's tasting room and restaurant.
Daylesford Cider's range of product is made using only the very best Heritage apples.
To be held on Friday 23rd June the day kicks off at 10.30 AM with a tour of the orchards and cidery, giving visitors the opportunity to learn about the different varieties of Heritage apples used and both the growing and manufacturing processes.
As luck would have it the tour will end at the Cellar Door where you'll be treated to a cider tasting class featuring the full range o product followed by a very relaxed 3-course banquet lunch featuring sustainably grown, free-range pork produced by nearby Brookland's Farm.
Put some Pork on your fork at Daylesford Cider's Happy As A Pig In Cider event.

Tickets cost $125 per person and include your orchard & cidery tour, the cider tasting class and lunch with a cider of your choice. Additional drinks, cider, beer and local wines will be available for purchase at the bar along with tea, coffee and soft drinks.
