The Cyder Market hard cider information for cider makers and drinkers in Mississippi.
Mississippi-is named for the Mississippi river which forms its western boundary and empties into the Gulf of Mexico. The name roughly translated from Native American folklore means “Father of Waters.” The translation comes from the Chippewa words “mici zibi” meaning “great river” or “gathering in of all the waters” and the Algonquin word “Messipi”. Mississippi was organized as a territory in 1798 and was admitted as the 20th state to join the Union on December 10, 1817. Jackson is the capital city and the largest metropolitan area. Agriculture is Mississippi’s number one industry, employing approximately 29% of the state’s workforce either directly or indirectly. Agriculture in Mississippi is a 7.6 billion-dollar industry. There are approximately 36,700 farms in the state covering 10.8 million acres. The average size farm is composed of 294 acres. Agriculture makes a significant contribution to all 82 counties. Although agriculture is a top employer, and the state is heavily forested outside of the Mississippi Delta area, there are few apple orchards. Yet Mississippi now has its first commercial cider maker, with surely more will follow.

Pamplemoose has been citra dry-hopped, giving it a hint of peaches on the nose, and a grapefruit-esque flavor.|
