From Beccy & Sam We are orchard cider makers and farmers, based in Chew Magna, North Somerset. We grow mostly Somerset cider apple varieties in traditional orchards, managing them in a careful organic way. After some years of hobby cider making we went full time in 2018 and scaled up production to 6,500 litres with fruit from our own 4.5 acre orchard and three other orchards around Somerset. Fruit is picked from the ground in the old way, let mature and fully ripen before pressing, and then fermented gently and slowly with wild yeasts, no sulphites and plenty of time. We mostly bottle cider in 75cl sparkling wine bottles and mature for at least a year before release.
