Lapinette Weekend

  • Virtue Cider 2170 62nd Street Fennville, MI, 49408 United States (map)

It's Easter weekend, and we're open! We are celebrating with Lapinette weekend: Grimes our farm rabbit will emerge from hibernation, we'll have a educational rabbit show featuring different breeds presented by an expert, a pop-up s'mores station by our friends at XO Marshmallow, and lots of Lapinette to go around! The party will be from noon to 4pm. We will be open all day, however, until 7pm.

In French folklore, it is said that farmers knew that spring was officially here when baby bunnies, "lapinettes," emerged from the warrens and hopped through the fields. In honor of this tradition, we are hosting an open house of the new dome home for our farm rabbit, Grimes. This will be his free-range digs for the season.

Help welcome him into his new home with a day of Lapinette cider toasts, s'mores from Chicago-based independent confectioner XO Marshmallow, and an educational rabbit show from a local rabbit expert who will show off several different breeds in all their bunny glory.

This year, Lapinette is being released for the first time in 500ml bottles. Take some home from our Bottle Shop!
