Somerset is a traditional cider-making area and we are lucky enough to have some great producers close by.  Beware though, it goes straight to your knees! 


Try Crossman's Cider from Mayfield Farm, Hewish about a 15 minute drive down the A370.   Ben is Phil's second cousin and is a small traditional producer. 


Thatchers Cider is about a 20 minute drive away at Myrtle Farm in the village of Sandford.  You may be familiar with Thatchers Gold but you really should try the Traditional or Cheddar Valley varieties which are cloudy in appearance.
