Sip cider straight from the source.

The hard cider market is burning up and the orchards of Ontario’s Southwest are throwing some delicious fuel on the fire. Get a taste for how local fruit sparkles in crisp apple and pear ciders.

I had visited Norfolk County a couple of times in the past, using the area as a springboard to a great ride, following the Waterfront Trail, Port Dover to Fort Erie, or as part of a rail trail tour weekend on an Ontario By Bike Ride, from Dundas to Port Dover. I felt I knew something about the bike scene in the area. But it wasn’t until I recently spent a weekend dedicated to exploration and cycling adventures that I experienced a true appreciation for all things Norfolk.
