Do You Love What You Do moves to Pennings Farm Cidery

— Anyone who has been to the Pennings Farm Cidery at 161 Route 94 South, has seen the interesting and unique sculptures by architect, artist and welder Amy Lewis Sweetman, which she created from discarded farm equipment.
What they may not know is that "Do You Love What You Do," an "Agrisculpture" monthly community lecture series, founded by Sweetman, will now be held at Pennings Farm Cidery.
On Friday, Nov. 3, Town of Warwick Supervisor Michael Sweeton, Orange County Legislator Paul Ruszkiewicz, and members of the Orange County and Warwick Chambers of Commerce, joined Sweetman and Pennings Farm owners, Steve and Jill Pennings, for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the move and grand opening of the lecture series.
Founded in February 2017, the series had experimental locations in Sugar Loaf and Chester prior to coming home to Warwick at Pennings Farm Cidery.
Before it was an Orange County based community series, however, "Do You Love What You Do," began as an original talk on Agrisculpture and following your dreams that Sweetman has given six times in the last five years at the invitation of her thesis Professor Henry Walter Richardson, to the Cornell University Architecture Program in Ithaca.
The "Do You Love What You Do?" Community Lecture Series will feature Cidery co-owner SJ Pennings at Pennings Farm Cidery next Wednesday, Nov. 15, from 6 to 8 p.m.
He will give a behind the scenes tour of both the production facility and tap room for hard cider making as well as tasting.
Since opening in 2016, third generation Pennings family members SJ and Tori Pennings have been crafting Pennings Farm-grown apples into hard cider at the Cidery.
During the winter months the "Do You Love What You Do," lecture series will be held in the "Winter Salon" at Pennings Farm Market, below the Cidery.
Tickets are $15.
