Sparta-based Riveridge Produce Marketing said last week it has expanded with the addition of Riveridge Cider Co.

The 17,400-square-foot facility, located in Grant, is fully operational and has the capacity to produce 30,000 gallons of cider each day.

The first bottles rolled off the line on Sep. 8.
