What Are We About?

Traditional real Sussex cider made with enthusiasm in a sleepy East Sussex village called Framfield.

Our cider is flat, still, unfiltered and wild fermented in small batches.

No fuss cider made in a no fuss way. We leave it alone for months and months and let nature do its thing.

It doesn’t seem right to mess with it so we add nothing - unless we decide to sweeten it at the end of course. We never know what we are going to get and we celebrate each batch as a unique offering - those apples, that orchard, that mix of fruit from that season, handpicked early or late depending on when harvest falls. And when a batch is gone, it’s gone.

Every September, we host an ‘Apple Appeal’. People arrive at the cidery gate in droves offering fruit from their gardens or orchards in exchange for cider. Apples are then pressed, tanked and left to ferment naturally.

 

"We planted a tree and grew a community"

 

Then we wait… and wait… until its ready, which can take a very long time. Stored in vessels out in the field, being battered by the elements and slowly matured through the year’s seasonal changes.

 And when it is ready, it is totally worth it.

In 2017 we launched a cider club to get cider lovers out of towns and into the countryside. We want cider fans to get their hands dirty, feel the sun on their backs and get as much out of our cider as we do.
