The Clives have been making cider on site since they started growing fruit trees. In the old days Mr Clive used to pay his labourers with cider (much to the disgust of the wives!). The cider made on site is mainly a bit of a hobby for us all but we are pleased with the results. Unlike most ciders, the vast majority of the fruit which goes into our cider is dessert or culinary fruit. Occasionally we buy local cider fruit to blend with our own but we aim to keep a traditional farmhouse feel to the whole process.
