Places to see in and around Lumsden:
Over the Hill Orchards - "It seems like a lifetime since we planted our first cherry tree; impatience being second only to mother nature in the trials we have faced. Throughout that exciting and challenging time, we were always innovating with new fruits being grown, new products being developed, and tours of the orchards being created. It is very gratifying to be able to offer our customers products created with so much passion and common-sense principles behind them such as using Certified Organic fruit, low sugar recipes, and even Gluten Free alternatives."
Last Mountain Distillery- PROUD TO BE SASKATCHEWAN’S FIRST MICRO DISTILLERY- Last Mountain Distillery is family owned and operated and is located in Lumsden, SK, the heart of grain country. "Our success lies in our commitment to producing high quality, handcrafted spirits. Our signature products include Saskatchewan’s best-selling and Canada’s only naturally infused dill pickle vodka, our naturally infused organic cherry whisky, apple pie moonshine and more. Our craft distilling process brings out the full flavour of the grain and leaves a smooth finish unlike any other." Take a Tour!
