Reasons for trip

It’s a farm where they make cider. That’s it. If you don’t like cider, don’t bother to read any more!

My wife and I went there on a visit with our local U3A group, but you can go on your own as well. The visit started with an introductory talk by one of the family who have lived on the farm for years. He described the cider-making process but most interestingly how their business has developed over recent years with the increased popularity of cider. In spite of this, they concentrate on their traditional product and are determined not to grow too large and sacrifice quality for quantity.

We were then taken on a short walk from the farm up to the barn where the apples were arriving and being transported via conveyor belt into a crusher. No old-fashioned cider press here! The juice having been extracted was piped into storage containers for fermentation. We saw all the rest of the storage facility, and heard about how the various different styles of cider were produced.

All that remained was to return to the farm to taste the products themselves! As part of the cost of the tour, we were each given a tasting glass that we could take home afterwards – and then invited to help ourselves to as much (or as little) of the range ciders on offer. Much to my surprise, my wife (who has never really liked cider) enjoyed the Wobbler very much! My personal favourite was the Andsome Bay, although I did manage just a small drop of the 7.2% Bull Walloper! Even more to our surprise (and pleasure!) was that we were each treated to a traditional Devon pasty to accompany our drinks – one of the largest pasties I can remember eating!

There is of course a farm shop where you can stock up on your favourites, which we did, and some of which will make excellent Christmas presents for friends and family, especially those who don’t live in Devon and for whom a traditional, local product is ideal!
