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 & Coffee Shop.
You'll find our Farmgate Store, Cider Lounge & Coffee Shop 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 drop in to 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 bar and lounging area. Cosy in Winter with our fire place and hot mulled cider and vibrant in the Summer with our outdoor servery window and range of apple themed cocktails. Our visitors can relax all year round whilst enjoying our craft ciders, famous apple desserts and even better conversations.
Groups smaller than 10 people are welcome to walk-in and find a table.
Tasting Paddles are available everyday.
Bookings are not required for tasting paddles but are recommended during peak times.
Sample award winning ciders with the people who make the ciders, grow the apples and blend the recipes.
We offer Group Cider Tastings for 10 or more people.
Different to our Tasting Paddles, group bookings will receive a fully guided tasting experience with one of the Mock family, sampling all our products.
We’ll teach you about the craft cider industry in Australia, why sugar doesn’t need to be added and why our ciders are different to most on the market.
Bookings are essential.
At our Farmgate Store we sell all of our certified Bio-Dynamic produce and assortment of products including our craft ciders, sparkling juices, cloudy juices and apple cider vinegar.
