WHAT'S IN A NAME?
We created our popular Waupoos cider brand around 20 years ago to celebrate the history of the area as a well as acknowledge the proud heritage of its First Peoples. Many descendants still reside here and most of us have a strong family connection to the First Peoples.
Waupoos is the name of the hamlet where our farm is located. It was named after Mississauga First Nation’s Chief Waupoos, who was a significant figure in our local heritage. Waupoos is Ojibwe for ‘rabbit’ (waabooz) or sometimes ‘running rabbit’ and our area is well known for its abundance of wild rabbits, wild turkeys, deer and many other wildlife.
The icon is based on a portrait of a woman who is a local business owner and our neighbour. She is a member of the Mohawk tribe whose land, Tyendinaga, is just across the bridge from Prince Edward County.
