With the arrival of the new year, Cider Hollow is proud to announce that there will be a lot of new changes coming throughout the new year. From new payment options and new products to new events and overnight accommodations this is sure to be an exciting year.
We are working hard to bring some new products to the farm store that we are very excited about. Some of the new products launching in 2018 are scion wood, educational e-books, and a variety of our own seasonings. Our scion wood for tree grafting will enable you to be able to graft some amazing varieties of fruit trees onto your rootstocks or existing trees. Seasonings slated to arrive in the farm store soon will include cast iron seasoning for keeping your cast iron in prime condition, dry rubs for your barbeque needs as well as sausage seasonings to make some of the most amazing sausages you have ever tasted. We will also have some very informative e-books launching this year to help you increase your knowledge and improve your skill sets.
Another option that we are very happy to announce is the availability to pay via many different cryptocurrencies. We are glad to be able to accept payments for many products with cryptocurrency. Unfortunately we cannot take cryptocurrency on all of our products but more products will be added regularly to our list of crypto payable products. Currently we are accepting Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, ZCash, Dash, Swarm and Ethereum with more to be added based on demand. If you are wanting to pay via crypto simply contact us and we will get you set up for crypto payments until we get this great payment option integrated into our shopping cart. There will also be a remodeling project in the farm store to help you find the products that you are looking for even easier and faster.
We will also be having a few new courses launching this year to include a charcuterie course and a soil building course. There will also be the returning grafting course that will be expanded to include basic plant propagation. Plant propagation is a great skill to have as plants are expensive and if you can make your own plants you are basically growing money. We will also be teaching courses at other farms throughout the year so keep an eye out for information on these great events as well.
Also in the works will be a nursery offering our already popular comfrey and grafting tape as well as many new plants and scion woods. The nursery has been in the works for a while and the 2018 year will be officially starting to offer products. We will have a nice variety of annual plants available but the main focus of the nursery will be perennials that provide years of beauty and production. Our temporary greenhouse is in the midst of being taken down and supplies are being compiled to erect the new permanent greenhouse structure. The new greenhouse will be operational by fall 2018 so 2019 will be an amazing year for our nursery. A few new propagation beds went in during 2017 and more are going in during the winter to have our production at a level to be able to offer a nice selection for your landscape.
We are very excited about the coming year and the many changes and additions to the farm. This should surely be a great year and as always if there is something that you would like to see us offering let us know and we will always do our best to accommodate your wishes.
