Our Aurora Premier Crus was the winning perry at the recent British Cider & Perry Competition held at the Royal Bath & West Show and was awarded the Champion Perry accolade. We believe this perry is the only organic bottle conditioned perry made in the UK and we only use fruit from the perry pear trees we have planted here at Butford Farm. The perry is ideal for special occasions and is particularly suited for weddings and other celebrations. You can buy this and all our products through our shop page.
We are delighted to have again been awarded best product in the cider/perry category at the 2016 Bolton CAMRA Festival with our single variety Brandy perry. This follows on from a similar success at last year’s Festival.
This perry will be available soon both from our online Shop and directly from our Farm.
Pruning completed, branches cleared and the trees ready to show their blossom again after the winters rest.
