Our family have farmed this Herefordshire land for over 140 years. It’s a beautiful part of the countryside and an important part of our heritage.
These agricultural roots remain as strong as ever. Today, alongside our apple orchards, we continue to raise our prize-winning Herefordshire cattle and sheep herds. The business outcomes may be different – but the care and compassion invested remains the same.
All our organic orchards are sustainably managed and certified by the Soil Association.
We simply enhance what nature provides us in harmony with the apples and pears. No chemical fertilizers and no pesticides. 100% natural and supported by the Soil Association. Some of the traditional orchards are over 100 years old, so planting new organic trees lets us provide for a sustainable future. We sort the organic fruit separately from the standard apples during harvest and we even have our own organic vat house which you can visit on the Cider Mill tour. If you like the sound a more sustainable cider, check out our Henry Westons Organic and Wyld Wood Organic. They both compliment a cheeseboard perfectly!
Living in the heart of rural Herefordshire is a privilege. We do everything we can to take care of the land: put simply, it shapes how we work.
In the early 1980s we established a natural wetlands system. Today, it’s become over 10 acres of glorious natural habitat. Our surplus waste water goes through the treatment system and on to the reed bed to be cleaned and returned to the brook. The purified water is also used to irrigate our orchards in the summer.
We also convert the sun’s rays to office electricity with the help of our rooftop solar panels.
I love working outside in the orchards. Its hard work, but rewarding and I have learnt a huge amount about caring for the trees over the years. We have fruit open days at the mill for local growers and it’s always useful to share knowledge between us.
