  • Our Story

  • Orchards

  • Cider Making Process

  • Janet and Martin moved to Herefordshire in 1999 and set about realising a lifetime’s ambition to produce food in a natural and environmentally friendly way. The result, Butford Organics.

  • We have three main orchards which provide all our apples. We planted two of the orchards ourselves and the other is a mature cider fruit orchard.

  • Traditional cider making is a centuries-old process that requires both skill and patience. From picking the apples to milling and pressing to bottling every stage is crucial.
