Independently of the commercial cider industry, the activity of home cider makers in Asturias is extraordinarily vigorous. It is estimated that around a thousand producers in the region make natural cider on their farms for their own consumption, and they frequently take part in the various competitions organised in many of the province's municipalities. The FEDERACIÓN DE ASOCIACIONES DE LA SIDRA CASERA CASERA DE ASTURIAS (FASCAS) has recently been founded, bringing together eight associations of home-made cider producers, with more associations likely to join in the future. Many of these associations organise cider competitions in their councils. Below is a preview of the calendar of these competitions for this summer. There are more, including the provincial one, which is usually held in October.
