****Give Bees a chance!****
Come and learn about and sample some of the Westcountry’s finest meads, arguably the world’s oldest alcoholic beverage, and one of the tastiest. Bees and their honey are as important to our orchards as the trees within them; let’s raise a glass to their good health and future. Yum.
***** Believe in the keeve! *****
Ice cold cider keeved to perfection. The ancient method of keeving produces a naturally sweeter cider than your typical farmhouse varieties. Naturally sparkling too- brilliant for a hot sweltering day, best served cold in a flute. Divine.
