Cheers with friends and cider

At Wooden Gate Cider, located on Wooden Gate Road in Pilot Mound, Manitoba, we’re more than just a cidery. It’s our home. Clint, our head cider-
maker, grew up just a couple miles away, and he knows the in ands outs of both the ciders and the land.

The crows on our orchard are not just part of the scenery. We see them as a symbol of how we do things around here—natural, sustainable, and al-
ways coming full circle. They remind us that what we take from the earth, we give back.

Wooden Gate Values

Our cidery is rooted in our community. We invest in the time and effort to build relationships with every farmer we work with and we know where our food comes from. We also source helping hands from our local community when it’s time to harvest. Our ciders are the result of a community effort.

At Wooden Gate Cider, our gate is always open to visitors who want to learn more about our cidery journey, our farm, and our cider-making process. We’d love to get to know you and share stories with each other.

We believe in beauty vs. bounty; that the true beauty lies in the food we grow, make, and share. As proud stewards of the land, we know that building a relationship with nature takes time—and we’re here for the long haul.

Our cidery prioritizes using fruits that are in-season, while working with our neighbours to harvest fruits from backyards and wild places. Not only does this reduce food waste, but it also helps restore nature.

We aim to reduce our food miles by sourcing apples and fruits locally in the prairies. The fruits we use are ethically harvested from our
orchard, neighbouring farms, backyards in our community, and in nature.

Our selection of ciders uses fruits that grow in our area, and we focus on working with the seasons (rather than against it). Our ciders are a product of what each year has to offer.

We are passionate about  crafting refined ciders, using traditional methods. Every cider is made with care; our ciders take time. We are part of a slow-food movement using low input methods and our intuition to make cider we are proud to share. We are increasing our selection of heritage fruit trees and believe whole food is real food.
