The cidery is located on an orchard that is over 100 years old.
We have many different types of apple planting. We also have many different types of apples. There are modern dessert apples like Ambrosia and Gala, heritage apples, crabs apples, and traditional cider apples that no one has heard of.
These apples are hand harvested at peak time to bring forward the best characteristic for our cider.
Our story starts in the early 1900s, with Lord Thomas Shaughnessy of the Canadian Pacific Railway. Shaughnessy landed in Summerland and immediately took a kind liking to the area. He saw the potential for fruit lots to be developed in Summerland and then export this high quality fruit all throughout Canada. Of course, being a railway man, he envisioned the Canadian Pacific Railway would be the means of exporting this new and exciting produce.
The Summerland Development Company extended Shaughnessy’s vision of a bright future. Many influential businessmen bought the orchard lots with hopes of newly planted trees bringing prosperity. These wealthy investors is why the Prairie Valley area gained the nickname ‘Millionaires’ Row.’
