Around 70% of the apples we use for cider are gifted to us from gardens and private orchards in East Sussex. These apples would otherwise go to waste, rotting on the orchard floor.
If you have an apple tree or orchard we would love to have any unwanted fruit for our cider production. All you need to do is bring them to us in Framfield. We’ll take any variety and they can even be a little bruised (though not rotten). Every large bag of apples given to us is exchanged for a FREE bottle of Bignose & Beardy cider. We launch our Apple Appeal every September. Sign up to our newsletter below for for news on this year’s appeal.
