At Apple Falls Cider Company, we aim to create cider that feature the true flavours of Prince Edward County. Our cider is made with delicious apples from Campbell’s Orchards and fermented using traditional methods.
Our story begins with my family business; Campbell’s Orchards, owned and operated by Dianne and Colin Campbell for 35 years. This property is situated on the Bay of Quinte in Prince Edward County.
If you have ever visited the Orchard, it is likely you participated in some of the awesome activities like picking apples, hopping on a wagon ride, getting lost in the corn maze or enjoying our fresh fruits and vegetables. Campbell’s Orchards grows over twenty varieties of apples and pears, strawberries, raspberries, cherries and plenty of other fruits and produce. We also bake pies, crisps, scones and other goodies prepared locally and in-house.
Matt Oskamp and I visited my family during the 2012 Olympic Games in London, England. Here we discovered the popularity and deliciousness of hard cider. I can remember enjoying Magner’s Cider on tap at a pub in London discussing our bar ideas for the orchard. As soon as we got home we began experimenting with different varieties of apples grown at the orchard. Ultimately, this led to us starting our own company, Apple Falls Cider.
