Harvest season is an important and magical time here at the cidery. This October, join us for some very special events and activities happening at the farm!
Apple Pressing – Throughout the week
Join us during a special time of year when our apples are picked and pressed to begin our new vintage. See the tonnes of apples ready for pressing in large bins, and watch the process as they travel through the hopper and into the press, leaving us with the sweet, aromatic juice that will eventually become the tasty cider we all know and love.
Long Table Dinner - Thursday, October 24th
Our Red Seal chefs will be on hand for what is sure to be a delicious and exciting seasonal dining experience. This buffet-style long table dinner in the orchard will include a pig roast and harvest sides. Tickets are $39 per person.
Please call us to reserve your tickets at 250-743-4293 or 1-800-998-9908.

After the dinner, look for our new products in the farmhouse store or at your favorite private liquor retailer.
