About us

50 Years And Counting

Geissberger Farmhouse Cider has been producing sweet apple cider since
1970. In 2012 we did a total equipment upgrade from a stationary cider mill to Ontario's first (and still only) Mobile Apple Cider Mill.

All of the apple cider is made from apples from the Region of Durham and not from concentrate. We also work closely with Durham Health Dept., Ministry of Agriculture and Canadian Food and Inspection Agency to produce a healthy and safe cider.

A bit of history in every apple.

The cider mill started with our Grandfather, dairy farmer, Hans Geissberger that immigrated from Switzerland with his wife Emma in 1925. The cider mill is still located on a section of their farm. After 40 years there are some interesting stories to tell. Although our Dad and Grandparents are not with us anymore the tradition lives on.
