RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Gov. Ralph Northam is announcing that a Virginia cidery plans to double its production to meet demand for hard cider.
Northam’s office said Wednesday that Old Hill Cider in Rockingham County plans to spend $500,000 and create five new jobs.
The company plans to get all of its apples from Virginia.
The state has approved a $25,000 grant for the expansion, which the county said it will match.
