The roots of Summerland Heritage Cider Company go back over 20 years to three friends, all orchardists growing apples in Summerland, British Columbia. As is common in the apple business, the end of each season saw a considerable number of apples left on the trees after the harvest was finished. Some of these apples were blemished, some lacked colour, and some were simply missed by the picking crew. Rather than let these apples fall to the ground these three friends decided to use them for something productive, and what's more productive than cider?
