CIDER MAKER - APPLE SUPPLIER - PARTNER
Born and raised in central New York State along the southern shore of Lake Ontario, Mat spent summers working the Smith family apple farm. Mat is a 3rd generation apple grower and cidermaker, and cider is a personal connection to his family and the land that provided for it for so many years. Mat has lived in Houston for 22 years and while cider has up until now been a passion and hobby, it has become apparent that he is uniquely positioned to leverage his connections to the apple industry and specialists in New York State to facilitate a cider production operation in Texas. He recently purchased a new orchard dedicated to cultivating cider apples.
