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.

Drinks Avaliable to pick from
I already had an appreciation of real ciders and perrys. Now my appreciation is enhanced as Butford Organics do make some lovely natural, organic, sulphite free examples. Further to that, delivery has always been excellent - literally overnight. Visiting was really enjoyable for us, meeting Janet and Martin, who were very welcoming, walking the orchards and buying apple juice, cider, perry and brandy - all excellent. To me these drinks carry me to a summer time when we had apple and pear trees, the sun, the buzzing and a sense of happiness. I'd recommend adding Butford Organics to your real cider experience.
Great ciders. Authentic; made with nothing but their own apples. Single variety apple juices too!
Visited the orchards on a cold Tuesday morning and had a great tour and explanation of cider and perry making by Martin, the owner. Easy onsite parking with a small shop and barn in which we tasted some of the many bottles on sale. All the products are grown and bottled organically; this is a hands on, quality orientated local producer. We tried some lovely cider with Infinite Possibilities living up to its title, but the star of the day was the Hendre Huffcap sparkling perry. Simply superb! It should be on your list of places to visit!
