Here at Fosseway Cider we manage to source our cider apples nearby from old, well established orchards that we have lovingly cared for to bring them back into healthy production. This is reflected with the quality of the juice that we extract and use to make Fosseway and Somerset Glory cider.
Our cyders are made with 100% apple juice, using a state-of-the-art Cyder Press and Cyder Cellar, and advanced cold-press processes.
We offer guided tours of the Cyder Press & Cellar lasting thirty minutes, ending with a small tasting. Tours take place daily at 11am and 2pm and are free, but must be booked on arrival.
Free apple pressing demonstrations take place on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays throughout the year for visitors to enjoy. You can then pick up a bottle of apple juice at our Farm Shop to take home.
We are a family run business who proudly make a scrumptious full bodied craft cider using classic Somerset apple varieties and traditional techniques. We love every part of our cider making process from pressing the apples in the autumn to drinking and selling it in the spring.
When the Honeys bought the farm in Midford near Bath back in 1960, the old maps – like so many in Somerset – had ‘orchard’ marked on several grass paddocks. It took 42 years, but in 2002 Bob Honey revived that tradition by planting traditional Somerset grazed orchards of big, widely spaced trees giving the sheep and cattle shade and shelter. In return they keep the grass and provide fertility to the orchard soil.
In this age of globalization, we're proud to be part of the glorious regional heritage of West Country Cider. We are working closely with other sustainable local orchards to preserve the rich tradition for generations to come.
