Apple Growers

COMMUNITY APPLES – 2023 Season Closed

Thank you to all our community for bringing your apples. We received 30,000 lbs this year. Your apples will go to our crowd-sourced cider Kings & Spies with some proceeds of the sales supporting Growing Chefs.

We look forward to collaborating with you again in 2024!



Calling all local growers, backyard farmers & apple foragers!

Sea Cider welcomes apple deliveries from local growers if they’re grown with care. As many folks know, our Kings & Spies cider is the delicious result of our crowd-sourced fruit program and a tribute to the apple heritage of our region. It’s made from local apples foraged from apple trees and heritage orchards all over Victoria. Whether you have only one lonely apple tree or many, your apples may be suitable for our ciders.


A few conditions…
Although we can use ugly apples to make cider, we do require a certain level of quality to accept the fruit. Any fruit with rot, unhealed wounds or significant bruising will not be accepted. If you are a certified organic grower, we’ll need a current copy of your certificate. If you are not a certified organic grower but grow your apples without the use of chemicals, we would still love to hear from you.

Apple growers may choose between payment in bottles of cider and/or gift card, issued at the time of apple drop off. We will also purchase apples at a ‘community rate’ for larger orders under <1000 lbs. For orders over 1000lbs, please email to arrange drop-off.

Our 2024 drop-off season will be announced via our website and social media.


Sadly, we do not have the person-power to pick your apples or pick-up apples

For more information, please email our Farm Technician, Leif.
