Enjoying the fruit of his labour

At the grand opening in June of the new BC Tree Fruits Cider Co., Sara-Jane Schofield pours a taste of Broken Ladder apple cider for BC Fruit Growers’ Association president Fred Steele. Already, the new company has surpassed its projected sales this spring and the new venture has already put its third batch of the popular cider into cans. BC’s new regulations regarding the Agricultural Land Reserve will make it easier for breweries, cideries and distilleries to operate on ALR land, similar to on-farm wineries. (Judie Steeves photo)
