Description

Join Alan Berry of Blackmore Vale Cider for a half day introduction to cider making workshop. In 2015 at the Mid-Somerset Show 2015 Alan was named Somerset Cider Champion while in 2014 at the Bath and West Show his medium farmhouse cider gained a second prize, his sweet farmhouse cider was very highly commended and he was delighted that his cider was voted the People’s Choice from a blind tasting by members of the public over the three days of the show.

The cider-making workshop lasts three hours. The session starts at Empire Farm, where Alan introduces you to the basics of making cider – the different types of apples, and the equipment you will need. Then we drive to Alan’s workshop on the other side of the village, where you can see his orchard and equipment. He demonstrates the whole process including the preparation of the fruit, followed by milling and pressing. Everybody has a chance to join in and help. Then we return to the farm for the final Q and A session with afternoon tea and cake.

Cider making can get a bit mucky, so we provide aprons. However, you are advised to wear old clothes. Everybody gets to take away a set of notes.

The afternoon workshop start at 2pm (arrival 1.45) and finishes at 5 pm. The price includes all tuition and refreshments.

Saturday 19 October 2019 2 – 5 pm £45 incl vat
