It starts with heirloom apples
We carefully cultivate and select the apple varietals for our cider. With such a rich heritage of apple growing in the Okanagan, we’re spoiled for choice.
We raise and harvest a variety of heirloom cider apples, as well
as crab and dessert apples at our orchards in Summerland.
Small-batch cider from branch to bottle
We do everything by hand so that we can craft the highest quality
cider, experiment with some interesting ingredients and
techniques, and keep it fun.

Founded by three friends
We all grew up in the countryside: Robin in southern England, Luke in Saskatchewan, and Mike right here in Summerland.
We started Dominion Cider Co. because we wanted to create something from scratch, with our hands, on land that we steward. We wanted to build a company that celebrates with a cold cider after a day of hard work. A company that is enduring, sustainable, and honest.
We named our cidery after the
Dominion Experimental Farms
Dominion Experimental Farms was an agricultural network stretching from coast to coast created in the late 1800s to support Canadian farmers. It's got more than a century of history here in Summerland, BC. It’s a name that means heritage, collaboration, and innovation — values that inspire us.
Set up to study and develop new apple varieties introduced by early settlers from Europe, the Dominion Experimental Farm created a legacy of distinctive heritage apples around here. Over time, as tastes changed, many orchards were replaced by vineyards – the heritage apples forgotten. We're bringing them back.
We care about the local community and are aware of our responsibility as a company to contribute positively to that community’s social and environmental fabric. We’re making purposeful contributions every year to support the issues that are important to us. This year, we’re supporting the important work of the following organizations.
Made in a little quonset on our farm
From branch to bottle, we do everything by hand at our farm: from picking apples and pressing juice, to bottling and drinking it with you at our on-site tasting bar. And we are pretty lucky to have a bunch of family and friends help out with every aspect of the process. Come by and share some cider with us.
We are closed for the winter season. Please call or email to make an appointment if you would like to visit.
