Farmstrong Cider Company
Jeff and Halee Fried are strong-hearted local farmers – one could even say they are “farmstrong-hearted” – and have been for over 30 years. Along with their sons, they are devoted to harvesting fresh products for residents and visitors.
In 2016, the Frieds acquired farmland on Maw Road. The property, which had astounding agricultural potential, turned out to be steeped in history as well, with a century-old barn on site. With Halee’s interests rooted in cider and Jeff’s vision of restoring the heritage barn, Farmstrong Cider Company was born. A bright, new attraction in the area, Farmstrong Cider encourages visitors and locals to venture out and try some amazing cider – dry or sweet, with the ideal amount of effervescence – accompanied by breathtaking views and friendly faces. Cheers!
Edge of the Earth Winery
The Edge of the Earth Winery, owned by Russ and Marni Niles, sits right in the heart of Spallumcheen. Upon arrival, visitors will be greeted by Sophie, the family Border Collie, with open paws. Beautifully crafted small batch wine is made on site. Winemaking can be problematic in this area, but luckily an abundance of sunshine, deep mineral soil, and sparkling clean water on location combine to produce grapes and wines of exquisite freshness and unique flavours. Come to the Edge of the Earth for the wine and stay for the beauty and company – your journey will be more than worth it.
