Noggins Corner Cider

10009 Hwy #1
Greenwich, Nova Scotia, B4P 2R2


Located in Noggins Corner Farm, in Greenwich. A century before Canada became a country, the Bishop family founded what would become one of the oldest farms along the banks of the Cornwallis River in present-day Greenwich. Current owner Avard Bishop and his wife Sandy took over the farm in 1955. 20 years later, he brought his two eldest sons, Andrew and Stirling into the family business. The family has worked hard to perfect the art of apple growing, which continues to be their main crop.

The Bishops incorporated Noggins Corner Farm in 1992. The name “Noggins Corner” harks back to the late 1800s when weary travellers bought “noggins” of rum from an old Greenwich farmhouse.
