Cider House Rules

Sep 15, 2009 | Nicola Ross | Homegrown in the Hills

Tom Wilson and Nicole Judge should not have had to endure four years of administrative tomfoolery to establish Spirit Tree Estate, their cidery, bakery and local food shop.

In The Hills is an independent, locally owned print and online magazine that has earned its reputation as the best-read, best-loved magazine in Headwaters.

The magazine is delivered to more than 40,000 homes and farms throughout Caledon, Erin, Dufferin, Orangeville and Creemore – up to double the circulation of any other local publication. And it is available to visitors at local inns, restaurants, specialty retail stores and other tourist locations.
