Yip Cider

Long Reach, NB E5S 2L2


Located in Long Reach a short distance from St John. Cider is made froms 100% New Brunswick apples. We ferment and bottle handpicked apples at Mackay Apple Orchard. 

Yip McKay is the name of the founder. Yip was born in Saint John, New Brunswick, where he developed a deep appreciation for its diverse forests, majestic rivers and people of character. Leaving New Brunswick in 1933 for military college, then WWII, and a career in Toronto, he was determined to come home some day.

 He would return every summer to plant apple trees, raspberry bushes and a vegetable garden, until 1972, when he was able to move back home for good.

Yip enjoyed duck hunting, boating, and most importantly, making cider. He would pick the apples, enlisting anyone he could to help, then set out to craft his cider, which he would share with his family and neighbouring farms.

Yip's son, Chas, caught the bug, changed careers, and became a full time apple farmer in 1980. Chas and his family have been carrying on the tradition of everything apples and cider to this day.  Chas son's Sam,Joe, Huge work the cidery today
