Ontario Cider Map

I've put together a small map of Ontario cider orchards (hard cider of course!). Only been to Spirit Tree so far but could make for a day out to the Bruce Peninsula.

  1. There are a few in Prince Edward County -- County Cider Company and Waupoos come to mind immediately, but I think there may be others.

      I think County Cider and Waupoos are one and the same.

    2. Here's a Cider event in Toronto tomorrow (Sunday):
      It's being held at the Spadina Museum from 2 to 5 on Sept. 15.

          It will have hard cider too! (Including Spirit Tree)
          And a rep from the Ontario craft cider association - to help with the map!

            You're right that it's fresh-pressed (sweet or soft) cider, but here are some of the sponsors: Pommies Dry Cider, Spirit Tree Cidery, Hoity Toity Cellars and Thornbury! Definitely not of the 'soft' variety.

            Oh thanks, TO Chowfan. I missed your post while I was posting mine.

        2. Just had Spirit Tree on draught at Morgans on the Danforth.

          1. Another one:
            The Duxbury Cider Company, in Meaford

              Seems you can't visit them. It does mention two establishments in Meaford and Thornbury that have the ciders. You can't visit The Thornbury Cider company either.

            2. Good stuff. Some of those are easy driving for me. I'll be visiting. Thank you.

              Given the number of Orchards in Southern Ontario I'm puzzled as to why we don't see more hard cider produced.

                We grow lots of corn, too, but not much whiskey to show for it...You fill in the blank as to why.
