When talking to Jeremy Hall and Erin Chaparro, the husband-and-wife team who founded Blossom Barn Cidery in 2018, I quickly came to understand how deeply important both family and farming are to the couple. Located on Jeremy’s family farm in Grants Pass, Oregon, Blossom Barn Cidery is one of the few cideries in the U.S. focused solely on making perry (pear cider). Erin is also one of very few Mexican-American entrepreneurs running a cider house.
Sean and I met Jeremy and Erin in Oakland at CiderCon 2020. Erin has a Ph.D. in School Psychology, and I was really interested in her path to industry. Also, being part of a husband-and-wife team myself, I was interested in learning more about how Jeremy and Erin work together to run their business.
