Big Fish Wassailers Preparing for their March to the Orchard

With all the cider craze these days, we have to ask: Have you ever heard of a Wassail?

In a nutshell, wassailing is an old English custom performed to ensure a healthier apple orchard by walking through an orchard at night, scaring away evil spirits that are harmful to the trees, and waking the tree spirits with gifts and a blessing. The folks at Big Fish Cider Co. in Monterey can surely explain the event to you! Take a look at the video below where Kirk Billingsley, Big Fish owner and cider maker, tells a little more about the tradition.
