Small Town Big Deal´s "Great Stories of America" to Feature Fly Creek Cider Mill & Orchard December 13 on RFD-TV Network
Fly Creek, NY- Thursday evening, December 13 at 9:30 the Fly Creek Cider Mill & Orchard’s historic cider making operation will be featured on RFD-TV’s Small Town Big Deal with host Rodney Miller.
The segment was filmed in late September during peak cider making with host Rodney Miller actually participating in production. The crew filmed the entire cider process from start to finish and interviewed owners Bill and Brenda Michaels and visitors touring the Mill that day.
The show found out about the Mill through the Executive Producer, Roger Mahr, who grew up in Canajoharie and still owns a farm there. Mahr and Miller created Small Town Big Deal to showcase real slices of rural Americana for viewers to see the history and meaning of growing up in the country.
“We are really proud to be featured by this national broadcast,” says Bill Michaels. “Hopefully this episode will entice more people to visit us in Fly Creek or shop our On-Line Store. We are now at peak gift-basket production and this exposure might push us over the top for the Holiday Season. Timing couldn’t have been better!”
Small Town Big Deal airs Thursday nights at 9:30 on RFT-TV, which is locally aired on channel 794 with Time Warner Cable, 345 on Direct TV and 231 on Dish Network.
