Episode 3

Dominion: Cider in Summerland

This episode: a conversation with apple grower and cider maker Mike Harris of Dominion Cider Company in Summerland.

You'll learn how a guy went from an oil & gas job and no farming experience to managing an apple orchard and producing good cider in just a few years, why the snobs who say you can't make good cider with dessert apples are totally right and totally wrong, and how one of the best recent investments Mike made in the business made him less efficient at what he does.
