Commencing in August 2020 and subject to specific requests, we can host (using Cisco Webex) one-to-one or small group on-line video seminars and ‘virtual’ meetings. These can take the form of simple Q&A consultations through to more formal presentation-led seminars on a wide range of introductory or advanced cider production topics of specific interest. Sessions can be provided on a one-off basis or scheduled to run as a series on a number of different dates and/or times. Please contact us if you are interested in this service.
