Local food, drink, and craft industry play a huge role in the development of communities and a sense of place. Local craft foods and beverages link our social and cultural experiences with the place we live and the land we live on.
We started making cider because we saw the potential to impact our local community and local food systems.
Here are the ways we are working hard to impact our community:
- Provide a place and incentives to drop off fruit to be used in local cider;
- Donate a portion of profits from all our cider to non-profit organizations in our community;
- Support other organizations with similar goals;
- Encourage others to make their own cider.
PROVIDE A PLACE AND INCENTIVES TO DROP OFF FRUIT TO BE USED IN LOCAL CIDER
We are so excited about our Backyard Harvest! We will be accepting donations of fruit at our cidery in central Edmonton.
Learn more about the Backyard Harvest and how you can donate your fruit.
Sign up for Backyard Harvest reminders through our Fresh From the Press emails.
Your donation of fruit also gets you into our Backyard Harvest Club.
DONATE A PORTION OF PROFITS FROM ALL OUR CIDER TO NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS IN OUR COMMUNITY.
Each of our ciders will be paired with a local non-profit where a portion of the profits will be donated.
