Please complete our Cider Maker survey; we value your input as we work to grow our local fruit economy!

Dear Cider Makers of the Rocky Mountain Region & other states bordering Colorado,

Montezuma Orchard Restoration Project (MORP) recently received an Enrich Colorado Agriculture Grant Program award to conduct a Market Analysis for Apples and Juice; and we need your input! We would highly value your feedback/knowledge as we work to grow our local fruit economy. A link to our survey targeted to both commercial and hobbyist cider makers in our region is provided here.

MORP envisions southwestern Colorado being renowned for an orchard culture and economy based on the legendary quality of Montezuma Valley Fruits. As we work to restore our old orchards and plant new ones we are particularly interested in the needs of cider makers; indeed we feel YOU are key to our success. We often say, "Orchard restoration projects and cider makers make a perfect pairing"!

We want to assure you that all data collected will be confidential and reported anonymously. So please gather your end of year reports (unless all data is at the top of your head!) along with your favorite bottle/can of cider; and take the bit of time to complete our survey. We hope you are able to finish by the time the bottle is empty!

To encourage you to complete the survey we will send you a FREE half pound bag of freshly roasted coffee if completed by January 18, 2016! Yes, MORP has a little gig on the side to raise funds/awareness for our local orchards called Restoration Roasters; involving an 7# Diedrich Roaster and the best beans we can get our hands on. As you know, it is all about starting with good product, finding the "sweet spot", and not messing anything up along the way.

Montezuma Orchard Restoration Project looks forward to getting good things done in 2016! We need your help to steer us in the right direction. Please complete the survey; we will highly value the results, and share them with you!

Cheers! Addie & Jude Schuenemeyer
