250 Comba Lane, Pakenham
(4km south of the Pakenham General Store, off County Road 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 fine artwork, body products and sample locally grown and produced preserves as you sip the delicious cider. Enjoy the magnificent post and beam cider barn, and weather permitting, feel free to stroll around this very special property.
Three artists await you here:
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.
