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 firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange drop off.
We will be accepting apples delivered between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm on weekdays from August 29th, 2023 until November 4th, 2023.
Sadly, we do not have the person-power to pick your apples or pick-up apples
