The cidery is named after a creek that runs adjacent to the farm. The creek is called The Dead Horse Creek. The cidery is owned by Marcus Wiebe. He is also the cidermaster.
The cidery which is located on a century old family farmyard was founded in 2018. The owners purchased an apple press and realized that there was a large amount of apples in the province of Manitoba that were going to waste. They then set out on a journey to make Canadian prairie hard cider! Today they press 75,000 lbs of local Manitoba apples into hard cider and fresh pressed juice. They are the only cidery in Manitoba that uses apples that are locally grown. Prairie apples offer unique qualities and make some very interesting ciders.
Marcus comes from a family of farmers. Before making cider he was a vegetable farmer that grew peas, corn and beans selling his produce to stores across Manitoba. When presented with the opportunity to purchase an apple press he thought with his vegetable connections it would be a great fit.
Philosophy: Don't take yourself to seriously. Have fun. Make cider that tastes good.
