Canyon County's new cidery


CALDWELL — A Caldwell barn that’s outlived its agrarian origins is in line for a renovation for its second life as a cider and winery tasting room.

The owners of a cider company and winery have plans for a new facility at Canyon County’s future Peaceful Belly Farms location in the Sunnyslope agriculture area.

The “Vine and Branch Ranch” was granted preliminary administrative approval from the Canyon County development department to begin developing architectural plans to restore and renovate a 7,000-square-foot shop on Hoskins Road along Sunnyslope into a tasting room and production facility. The new facility will share property at Canyon County’s future Peaceful Belly Farms location.
