250 Comba Lane, Pakenham (4km south of the Pakenham General Store, off #29)
This is the first year Farmgate Cider is a tour stop for the Maple Run Tour, but this special place promises to be a visitor favourite. Down a single-track lane, through old-growth forest, across a bridge spanning a rushing creek, and past a century-old farmhouse built by one of Pakenham’s original settlers, you’ll find a recently renovated heritage barn, home to Farmgate Cider.
Family owned and operated, Farmgate Cider produces bright and well-balanced ciders inspired by the British and French-style dry beverages. With a commitment to eco-friendly and farm-to-glass production methods, you won’t find any preservatives or additives here.
Take in the art and fine craft, sip a cider, enjoy the magnificent post and beam cider barn, and (weather permitting) feel free to stroll around this very special property.

A note on getting here: The cidery is located down a 1km, single-car laneway. Please drive slowly! There are two “passing” spots, so if you happen to meet someone on the lane you might have to backup a bit to let them by. Once you make it down the lane, please cross the bridge, and drive by the house to the barn, where there is ample gravelled parking.
