Cider (Engl)

From the early 1800s, the Sheppy family has been making cider in the West Country. From 1925 we have been renowned for our quality ciders, which have gained between them over 200 awards and two gold medals. Gone are the days when every farm made its own special cider, but down in the Vale of Taunton Deane, in the Cider County of Somerset, there still remains one of the true Farmer Cidermakers - Sheppy's of Bradford-on-Tone.

Today people come from far and wide to Sheppy's 370 acre farm, where there are 42 acres of cider orchards, producing apples with such romantic names as Kingston Black, Yarlington Mill, Dabinett, Stoke Red, Tremlett's Bitter and many more.
