The story behind the formation and setup of Fraser Valley Cider Company is one of adventure and new beginnings. Today, 2 years after the site of the Cidery was identified and proposed, the 12 acre farm on which it stands is home to an orchard of 1800 trees. To produce the highest quality cider on a consistent basis, 25 different cider apples of French and English origin constitute the plantation. It has been a long journey getting to this point where people from all over the world look forward to enjoying a cold cider from Fraser Valley Cider on a sunny day.

Making wine and cider both require the process of fermentation; this occurs when sugar is converted into alcohol by yeast. During the first stage of fermentation, sugar molecules are turned into ethanol where yeast feeds on the sugars contained in liquids like grape juice, fruit or apples. In both processes, specific types of yeast strains are chosen to produce the desired results. Whether you’re making wine or cider, the result should be a drink that has that right balance - not too sweet, yet not too dry. This can be achieved through careful monitoring of temperature and other factors during fermentation. Finally, both wines and ciders may need to be bottled and/or aged over several months or even years before they are ready to enjoy!
