FREE LOCAL PICKUP AND LOCAL DELIVERY IN PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY!
1. How do you make your lemonade?
FRESH PRESSED BY HAND - Each bottled is created in small batches with every lemon pressed by Dave himself.
NO ADDITIVES - Every bottle contains nothing but lemons and our own homemade simple syrup, made fresh and 100% natural. We also pop in a small amount of citric acid for added zing!
PASTEURIZED - Every bottle is pasteurized for your safety and created by Dave using our own small scale bottling facilities in Milford, Ontario.

We offer free local pickup and free local delivery in Prince Edward County on all orders! Here's how it works:
1. Local Pickup - Choose the option for 'Local Pickup' when you complete your online order, and we'll get in touch with you via text/email to confirm exactly when your order will be ready and where to get it. Usually we'll have it ready next day, or even same day, for pickup at a designated location such as Vicki's Veggies roadside stand, or Wellington Market on Saturdays in the summer. We'll do our best to make it convenient for you!

4. When did you start selling lemonade in PEC?
Our lemonade story in The County started when the family stand first appeared way back in 2011 at Vicki’s Veggie’s Annual Tomato Tasting Event. We’ve been there every year since! A couple of years later, Dave started a few local music festivals called County Pop and Sandbanks Music Festival which always featured the lemonade stand as part of the action. It was when Dave started selling at Wellington Farmers Market that he felt like he had found his 'spiritual home'. Finally, the spring of 2020 brought a pandemic, and inspired a pivot to create a new bottled lemonade! Always made by hand, and always one at a time.
5. How do you give back and support the arts and music?
We have a mission to use lemonade for social good. We like to support things that make the world a better place!
1. Local Music and Art - Our plan is to continue to use our Commercials and Bottling Barn Sessions to directly support local musicians and artists. Instead of buying cheesy Facebook ads (and stuff like that), we pay artists directly to do the creative work they love to do!
2. Community - We do community projects that provide opportunities for young kids/families to become part of our stand and keep 100% of the selling price. For the right cause, we donate everything right down to the lemons themselves and we embed community members right into our team. It makes things fun for everyone, the funds get raised, and often kids that have never tasted a fresh lemonade in their life finally get a chance!
3. Donations - Real dollars are vital for so many important progressive organizations and continue to make efforts to make financial contributions to groups including Alternatives For Women, The Bail Project, Downie Wenjack and many others. Money matters!
Stay tuned to our social media for posts using the #lemonade4good hashtag, and learn more about how we support people doing great things!
6. What are you sustainability efforts?
Our goal is to continually find better ways to produce and deliver our lemonade with maximum sustainability. At our stand, we always use compostable corn-based cups, and paper straws. At our bottling barn, we follow the classic rules of reduce, reuse, recycle with a goal to minimize waste at all steps. We compost all our spent lemons onsite at our facility, and take pride in the fact that we have the largest lemon compost pile in all of Prince Edward County!
7. Where can I find your lemonade locally?
You can also find our lightly sparkling lemonade at many Prince Edward County restaurants, food trucks, and retail locations. Be sure to follow our Instagram account for the latest updates on new locations, and new products!
8. Do you sell wholesale to local stores and restaurants?
We take in pride in being a small operation, so our goal is to sell primarily in Prince Edward County. Get in touch with Dave directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about your location.
9. Who made your logo and label art?
The original Lemonade Dave logo was made by Hamilton-based graphic designer Lindsey Jacobs, and the bottle label illustration features an image created by long serving Canadian editorial cartoonist for the Toronto Star, Patrick Corrigan.
10. What's the best way to serve a Lemonade Dave drink?
Ice cold!!!...and yes, some people really like it as a mix.
