Early in September, TCAD toured the South Hill Cider tasting room and production facility, which were under construction at the time. The tasting room is now open for business!

South Hill Cider’s owner, Steve Selin, has been bottling cider since 2003 and plans to expand production in the next two years. Steve has already added three employees and is looking forward to having many visitors to the new tasting room.

South Hill Cider needed additional funding to make the new facility a reality and with the assistance of Chuck Schwerin, Managing Director of Business Services at TCAD, South Hill Cider secured funding from the TCAD revolving loan fund. TCAD’s  revolving loan fund aims to create quality employment opportunities by helping entrepreneurs start new businesses, expand current operations, and attract businesses to Tompkins County. The loan fund has assisted other local businesses including Rosie App., Ithaca Coffee Company’s roasting facility, and The Piggery. For more information on the TCAD revolving loan fund click HERE.
