If I had to try just one thing from your cidery?

Our cider! It is craft­ed in small batch­es from local heir­loom and dessert apples at our farm in Sum­mer­land.

It has a light gold­en amber colour and a live­ly effer­ves­cence in the glass. A dis­tinct apple aro­ma with a full-bod­ied mouth feel and sub­tle astrin­gency from the apple blend in each batch.

Equal­ly tasty after a long bike ride along Okana­gan Lake or a hike up Giant’s Head moun­tain. Espe­cial­ly deli­cious after a long day pick­ing apples in the orchard.

 

Why did you choose Summerland?

Mike Har­ris grew-up in Sum­mer­land pick­ing apples in local orchards — there is nowhere else we would con­sid­er mak­ing cider! So, we bought a farm, moved back to Sum­mer­land and start­ed a cidery in 2015. We’re plant­i­ng apple tree vari­etals orig­i­nal­ly nur­tured by the Domin­ion Exper­i­men­tal Farm in Sum­mer­land a cen­tu­ry ago. We feel very lucky to be able to learn from the rich her­itage and expe­ri­ence of local orchardists, and we’re thrilled to be a part of the bur­geon­ing com­mu­ni­ty of younger crafters. We have won­der­ful friends here doing and mak­ing many beau­ti­ful and deli­cious things. This makes Sum­mer­land a great place to be and, we hope, more attrac­tive to oth­er mak­ers that want to build a fruit­ful busi­ness, raise a lov­ing fam­i­ly and enrich a strong com­mu­ni­ty in Sum­mer­land.

 

Is there anything else to see, taste or do at your cidery?

You’ll often find us gath­ered around our out­door forno oven eat­ing piz­za and drink­ing cider. Our veg­etable gar­den is boun­ti­ful. We also roast cof­fee in very small batch­es and make some pret­ty tasty mac­chi­atos.
