The story of our cider begins with over 1,000 acres of orchards across Worcestershire & Herefordshire yielding a crop of different varieties of bittersweet and dessert apples for our cider makers to blend.
The sustainability and variety of our apples is crucial for us to deliver great tasting ciders, which is why we work with over twenty different farmer partners and agree twenty five year contracts to secure our supply for a generation.
We then take the apples for pressing to our ’Kingstone’ press which sits proudly within our Cider Mill on the banks of the river Severn. It’s named ‘Kingstone’ after the Herefordshire village close to where we harvested our first apples.
Our Classic Apple Cider is a refreshingly fruity, medium dry cider with a smooth, crisp finish. It’s crafted with a blend of the finest Dabinett and Michelin bittersweet apples from our local orchards and balanced with juice from refreshing eating apples.
Our Classic Pear Cider is a refreshing medium sweet pear cider with a smooth dry, crisp finish. It is crafted with a blend of juice from carefully selected varieties of pears to an authentic recipe from the Head Cider Maker.
This Wild Berry flavoured cider is a refreshing medium sweet fruit cider, with a smooth, crisp finish. It is crafted by cider makers blending an authentic apple cider recipe, made with culinary and eating apple juice, together with a carefully selected cocktail of wild berry flavours.
Crumpton Hill Farm Shop opened in October 2014. Before being the farm shop it is today, the shop started life as a farm shop selling the fruit which was grown on site. The farm then became a cider farm and the shop became well known for selling Knights Cider, both Malvern Gold and Malvern Oak. As well as selling the bottled cider, the shop also sold draught cider straight from the large vats in the wall. The shop closed in June 2014 as the manager retired. As locals in Storridge for over 20 years, we felt there was a need in the village for a farm shop specialising in local and fresh fruit and vegetables. As well as the fruit and vegetables, condiments, jams, meats, milk, cheese, bread and cakes, we also have a large range of local ciders, perrys, beers and wines. As the shop is set in the beautiful apple orchards of the farm, we are looking to expand into selling teas, coffees and freshly made cakes for our customers. As well as the tea room, we also have many plans for the shop including expanding the cider, beer and wine range so it’s the best in the area.
