Handcrafted Western Maryland Lemonade was born in the Cumberland Farmers Market. Being an avid gardener and greenhouse hobbyist, owner Todd Helmick began selling his bottled lemonade at the Downtown Cumberland Farmers Market while trying to keep up with sales of his garden produce and vegetable bedding plants. The lemonade seemed to be a big hit with customers so Todd kept experimenting by adding this freshly picked produce from his garden. He also realized that this region offered quite a bit of wild organic options such as black raspberries, pawpaw fruits, plums and maple sap...all a natural product of the Appalachian Mountains. Local and fresh is the key word here.
