Did you have a nice winter off?

I get asked this question a lot!  While admittedly we can spend the whole winter season in the one set of work clothes and we don’t have to brush our hair as often we’re still as busy at the cidery as during the summer.  In fact it sometimes seems more frantic, but...

What on earth does a chicken have to do with cider?

We often get asked why we have a chicken on our logo – after all what does cider have to do with chickens of any type or colour?  When Teresa, our graphic designer presented me with the various options for our logo back in 2015 my initial reaction was the same. ...

Where Did You Wassail This Year?
