Owner & General Manager
Jenifer Dean had her first tastes of non-alcoholic cider as a child. Her father was something of an amateur winemaker and it was not uncommon for carboys of wines, beers and even saki to be bubbling away in the basement of their home. After 20 years in the restaurant business, she returned to school to complete the Wine Technology program at Loyalist College. She’s been the General Manager and Cider maker at The County Cider Company since 2000.
Production Manager & Cider Maker
Dannielle has worked at County Cider since 1997. She left to pursue opportunity, adventure and travel for a few years, but returned home to attend Loyalist College’s Biotechnology Technician program where she graduated Dean’s List. After doing her graduation placement in the laboratory under the tutelage of Jenifer Dean, Dannielle stayed on and has since moved up to Production Manager. She’s also judged North America’s finest ciders at GLINTCAP. This girl is on fire.
Office Co-ordinator & Licensee Services
Born and raised in Prince Edward County, Mackenzie and her adorable family still call the County home. She continues to bring her excellent customer service skills to all aspects of work at County Cider and is our main point of contact for licensees and cider lovers province wide.

Tasting Room & Restaurant Manager
Charlotte has been a consummate 'Cider Girl' since she joined our team in 2011. She has since been a friendly face serving on our patio, working special events, bottling cider and running our social media sites, where you can regularly see her passion and influence. This year, we welcome her to join our management team where she will oversee our tasting room & retail store. We invite you to enjoy a tasting with Charlotte this summer and share in her enthusiasm for our family of exemplary ciders and the history behind our company. Cheers!
Dudley takes his job of greeting visitors to the farm very seriously. When he’s not busy eating apples, napping, running in the orchard, swimming, chasing squirrels or sleeping, he’s wagging his tail and licking the faces of everyone he meets. His favourite time of day is 6 pm in the tasting room, where he gets his treat. It’s a dog’s life. Literally.
