Discover premium natural ciders
crafted in the traditional UK-style.
Pure Fermented Apple Bliss in a Bottle
At Riverdale Orchard & Cidery, we’re dedicated to crafting artisanal hard ciders that celebrate the humble-yet-mighty apple.
In the longstanding tradition of the UK-style ciders from our home country of Scotland, we do not add anything to our ciders – no sulfites, yeasts, hops, grains, water, flavourings, or juice concentrates.
The result is pure fermented apple bliss in a bottle, ready for you to savour.

How do ya like them apples?
One of the Best Cideries in the Maritimes. Possibly the best! As a cider-maker, I've tasted a lot of cider from around the world and Riverdale Orchards gives me hope that ciders in our region can be smooth and elegant. Anne and Alex focus on producing a quality product that is true to form and the perfect marriage of European and North American cider styles. These guys are pioneers to bringing real cider to the maritimes!
Great spot. Awesome cider, staff, food and view is out of this world!! Must stop in for a cold cider on their deck with some food.

Your first visit will definitely not be your last! We appreciate good cider and 2 Scots 3 Apples did not disappoint. We look forward to many visits to enjoy their food and Traditional Scottish baked goods.
Two Scots and their apples should be part of your PEI experience. We spent a lovely afternoon sitting on the deck and chatting with the owners of this wonderful orchard. Their award-winning cider must be tried. You'll leave with a case. Lovely people, lovely setting and outstanding cider!
Really Good Cider and Experience. A few friends and I stopped at Riverdale Orchard for Ciders and sandwiches on our way back from walking the Strathgartney trails. We had a great time relaxing on the deck enjoying chilled ciders and delicious homemade food. We will definitely be back.

A Delicious Reminder of Home. Immigrating from Ireland to PEI, delicious cider is the one drink I missed. Riverdale Orchard has changed that. Their product is amazing and i am delighted to see this company grow in our community.
The finest cider I have ever had. The respect for the ingredients and care in production possible with a handcrafted product shines through.

Great cider and delicious!! Went there for a casual dinner. The owners were lovely and very friendly. The dinner was simple but delicious. The cider was excellent!! Will definitely go there again on our next visit to PEI.
Love it... can't wait for your scones... Thought 6 bottles would do....we love it...will see you this weekend for more !!! 😉
Everything we have heard about this business (and the couple running it) is true -- excellent Cider ( on the dry & bubbly side, nice and refreshing), great location and wonderful service. We came in and had 15 or 20 minutes chatting and being made to feel very welcome. We will be back for more cider and are looking forward to the baked goods and foods offered soon. Definitely worth the trip!
Such a beautiful location run by a beautiful couple! We sat at quiet picnic tables overlooking the countryside at sunset while we noshed on delicious hand-made sandwiches & quiche and drank amazing cider (especially tasty over ice!). Can't wait to watch this place grow and see what delicacies they serve up next summer!
Amazing products, awesome service, two very kind owners!
Great people, great ciders in a beautiful location!
We dropped in this afternoon and we were greeted so warmly by Anne and Alex. We tasted the best cider and enjoyed a Ploughmans lunch overlooking the beautiful rolling hills of Bonshaw, PEI. Thanks for a great experience.
The only cidery I know of in Canada that makes proper British cider in the 100% natural and traditional way with only one ingredient - apples. The end product is very tasty, authentic, and made by a lovely couple. We will be back next time!
Great cider made with 100% natural products. They also offer a variety of home cooked food.
