Our Story

_MG_8532-1.jpg

No one can deny that the farming community roots of Brad, Heather and Peter Fraser of Fraser’s run generations deep.  Brad grew up on and operated the nationally-recognized Spring Farms, a premier Holstein breeder and Heather grew up on Burntrock Farm, a leading Limousin breeder.  But when they purchased Wheelbarrow Orchard in 2005, it was a fairly large leap from their collective livestock experience. This new venture quickly became successful and in 2007, they further diversified their business by starting Harvest Goodies, an on-farm processing facility specializing in local food products.  Over the last 11 years, Harvest Goodies has grown exponentially, making over 80 products and supplying 60 wholesale customers.   The Foodland Ontario logo is proudly displayed on all of their products.  With a focus on showcasing the natural deliciousness of Ontario-grown produce, Harvest Goodies strives to make a quality product using simple ingredients.

 

It was in this line of thinking that the idea of Fraser’s Beverage Company started.  As a family that has always enjoyed showcasing their homegrown products, the bounty of Ontario, and let’s be real - enjoying a drink every now and then - the progression to cider-making seemed inevitable.  So, in 2016, Peter Fraser started to experiment with cider-making and hone his skills at a local craft cider artisan.  Two years, a cider-making course, several recipe revisions and taste tests later, production was scaled up and Fraser’s Beverage Company was officially off the ground.  Made on the farm and using just two ingredients- local apples and yeast- the Fraser’s have crafted a cider that is easy drinking, dry and refreshing.

After 150 years of farming in Ontario, the only thing that is surprising is that the Frasers haven’t made a foray into the alcohol-making business before this.   They’d like to invite you to come out to the farm, have a drink of well-made craft cider and embrace the natural beauty of the orchard.  Hopefully, you return home with your thirst quenched, some new products for your fridge and a little more knowledge about farming and where your food comes from
