A place that makes authentic cider people haven’t had before. A place that makes everyone feel welcome and safe as soon as they step in the door. A place that’s a living love letter to Dartmouth. That’s what came into view when we first pictured what we wanted Lake City Cider to be.
And that’s exactly what we’ve created. With an honest, transparent approach to making awesome ciders, we connect our guests with local suppliers that make our flavours possible—like crisp apples from Stirling Farms and wild blueberries from Oxford, NS. We don’t do what’s easy or expected. We do what feels right, and what works for our fans, friends, and extended Dartmouth family.
We take part and take pride in our community. We’re always looking for ways to say thank you, show our love, and lift up.
Some organizations that we work with, believe in, and donate to are The North Grove, Egale Canada, Mi'kmaw Native Friendship Center, Adsum House, Dartmouth Community Fridge, Autism Nova Scotia, ReachAbility, and so many more!
The North Grove
When you see places doing amazing work, you can’t help but lend a hand. We take time throughout the year to support this incredible centre that gives those in need access to healthy food and a place to learn, connect, share and grow - Right here in Dartmouth!

Egale’s vision is a Canada, and ultimately a world, without homophobia, biphobia, transphobia and all other forms of oppression so that every person can achieve their full potential, free from hatred and bias. We full believe and support in their vision and align strongly with their values. We donate a portion of all sales of our Pride Rosé cider every year to their organization.

Autism Nova Scotia
Our partnership with Autism Nova Scotia is very important to us. We welcome participants into our space to learn more about how we operate as a business as well as introduce them to new skills and career opportunities. We recently welcomed 6 participants into our taproom and production space to help us carry out our day-to-day operations while also providing them the experience to see if they would be interested in pursuing a career in this industry.
