Summitview Farm

Hanna, Logan, Katherine Burnham and MPP Ann Hoggarth

When orchard owner Lance Burnham started making cider in 2013, it didn't take long to win over the taste buds of local customers. There was only one problem: the mishmash of apple varieties on his 40-acre orchard made it impossible to deliver batches of consistently flavoured cider. Where some might see weakness, Burnham saw opportunity. He started producing a variety of different ciders, embracing the eclectic mix of colours and tastes his apples offered. Each different batch came with its own unique name and label. Before long, the public was lining up to try the new products. Sales grew, and in the first four months of operation, the seasonal ciders of Summitview Farm found their way into more than 40 markets.
