Michigan Cider Association (USA)
Website: http://www.michiganciders.com As the Michigan cider industry continues to grow at an exciting yet rapid pace, we felt the time was right to establish an organization that supports education, research, and promotion of our emerging industry. In December 2014, the Michigan Cider Association (MCA) was formed by a core group of Michigan cider makers through a state-recognized 501(c)6 program. Although the MCA is a new organization, its intention is to provide short- and long-term significance and value to all members through the promotion and support of Michigan cider. We hope that you will see the importance of this organization and consider joining the MCA.
