Learn how to make your own delicious apple juice or cider.

Orchard Origins is running a number of workshops during the apple picking season on apple juice processing and cider-making.  The one-day introductory courses will take place at Houghton Court, a 200 acre working farm and Care farm, where we have helped plant an orchard of 250 mixed apple and pear varieties. It also where we have our fully-equipped Juicing Shed.

Orchard Origins First Batch Of Cider

Making craft cider isn’t something that can be rushed.  It has a long tradition and requires time and skill to produce good-tasting cider. We are guided through the process by a local Herefordshire cider-maker.

The apple juice will be left in an airtight storage tank to ferment slowly and allow the flavour to develop.   By the summer Orchard Origins’ first batch of craft cider should be ready for bottling.
