Our mission was to create a venue that is truly unique to the Mornington Peninsula, a region that was once renouned for apple growing, our venue is a celebration of the apple growing history in our area and our beloved family. What was once an original wooden coolstore, built on the orchard in 1945, has been transformed into our Cider Lounge for you to visit and enjoy our craft ciders and a tapas style lunch.
You'll find our Farmgate Store & Cider Lounge located at the front of our property adjacent to our 50+ year old apple trees. The area that was once a packing shed is now where you can purchase our products and fresh produce and the room that was once used to store hundreds of wooden crates of apples has been converted into our dining area. Cosy in Winter with our fire place and hot mulled-cider and vibrant in the Summer with our outdoor vine-covered, court yard and range of apple themed cocktails. Our visitors can relax all year round whilst enjoying our award winning craft ciders.
