Pommies has long been a beloved Caledon staple. This cidery is available in most LCBOs in southern Ontario and offers a few varieties! We're partial to the classic Pommies Original in the bright green can but the Pommies Cranberry is a perfect nod to fall.

With on-farm orchards (yes, they offer apple picking and tours), a wood-burning oven and a gourmet farm shop full of fine foods and baked goods, this cidery is the perfect introduction to the tastes of Caledon (and a product of sustainable facility design). Enjoy cider in the gardens or take some home to share!
