Bluegrass & Backroads: From a one-acre garden and a few apple trees, Evans Cider Mill now a destination

Evans Orchard and Cider Mill in Georgetown was once a cattle and tobacco operation, but in the 1990s, the fifth generation of the Evans family planted a one-acre garden and a few apple trees. That modest operation has evolved into an agri-tourism destination.

Kentucky is a state defined by its history and noted for a number of things, not the least of which is horse racing, bourbon, bluegrass music and barbecue.

But, as natives Bob Shrader and Matt Hilton remind us each week, there’s so much more to the Bluegrass State and its people, culture and rural charm. Shrader and Hilton combine their talents to produce the award-winning Bluegrass & Backroads, a 30-minute program aired regionally on the Kentucky Education Television networks and nationally via satellite on RFD-TV through Dish Network, DirecTV and several major cable outlets.
