A new cider stall at the Taste of Tasmania food festival is doing more than just quenching the thirst of patrons.
Lost Pippin cider is produced by Oak Tasmania, which provides care, training and work for Tasmanians with disabilities.
Cider maker Mark Robertson said the brew was made at Oak's grove farm with the help of Oak Tasmania clients.
"Picking the apples, helping me package things, doing the bottling, pruning, all of that sort of stuff's done by people living with a disability," he said.
"We're trying to give them as much opportunity as they can to develop new skills.
"That might be in our nursery, stuff that we do through our Tahune fields, grading that sort of stuff but it's also those guys learning about quality control as well." More than 110,000 people have visited the Taste of Tasmania festival over the past two days.
