No Boat On Sunday

Halifax, Nova Scotia

Remember the name :}.

No Boats On Sunday pays homage to a time when Halifax was once Canada's busiest gateway port. With the hectic day-to-day routine this brought about, the hardworking locals decided they deserved some time to unwind, pull up their oars, and get back to the things they loved – like enjoying time with family and friends. With that, the ‘No Boats On Sunday’ policy was born. No boats meant no work.

More Importantly they make good cider.


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.
