Register Interest for our Hands-On Cider Making

We’re currently gauging interest for our 1-day cider making courses potentially planned for 2024, though nothing is confirmed yet. Having hosted over 200 participants in our previous sessions, we’re excited about the possibility of bringing this unique experience back. If there’s enough interest, here are the details we plan to offer:

We start in the perry pear or mixed fruit orchard, where we explore apple varieties and harvesting techniques before picking for our finished product. Then, at our operations station, we go through the entire process of washing, milling, and pressing, with guided explanations at every step. Finally, you get cider to take home at the end.  Read below for more in-depth details. If you’re passionate about cider and eager to learn, let us know you’re interested!

  • What is included in the £150 per day course fee?

    The fee covers a comprehensive cider making experience, including apple picking, sorting, milling, pressing, fermentation, and bottling processes. It also includes a guided tasting session and a bottle of cider that you can take home. All necessary equipment and materials are provided, and you’ll receive hands-on training from our experienced cider makers.

  • Do I need any prior experience in cider making to join the course?

    No prior experience is necessary! Our course is designed for both beginners and cider enthusiasts. We provide step-by-step guidance through each stage of the cider making process, making it a fun and informative experience for everyone.

  • Are there any age restrictions for participating in the course?

    Yes, due to the nature of the course, which includes cider tasting, participants must be 18 years or older. We ask that all participants bring a valid ID on the day of the course for age verification.

    Excellent — a very interesting and informative tour, followed by tasting some superb cider and perry. One not to miss out on!

    Visited in 2021 and enjoyed a tour with Martin round the orchards. Have bought the perry and cider several times since. Both are a great accompaniment to Sunday lunch! And the cider brandy is delicious.

    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!
