Sea Cider Farm & Ciderhouse

Sea Cider Farm & Ciderhouse

A Sparkling Celebration

Sea Cider is a farm-based cidery located on the Saanich Peninsula just minutes from Victoria, on Vancouver Island. The ten-acre farm is home to over 1,300 apple trees, made up of over 50 varieties of heritage apples and has become one of the top Agri-Tourism Attractions in Victoria (Vancouver Island).

Sea Cider opened its farm gate for business in 2007 when owner Kristen Jordan purchased the property with a vision of creating an organic farm and orchard and producing traditionally fermented artisan ciders. Kristen is a sixth-generation farmer; having roots in both the Shuswap and on the Saanich Peninsula.

Since then, they’ve grown an annual cider production of over 7,000 cases and growing and continue to pride themselves on crafting traditionally fermented ciders from organically grown apples. Relax at their cider house (they have COVID protocol in place) and enjoy the panoramic water views overlooking the orchard and across Haro Strait.

Sea Cider is a fabulous venue for small weddings, corporate events, family functions and wellness retreats.

We feel privileged being involved in this tasty, successful local establishment. We have provided tasting flight boards and cribbage boards.
