Newton Court Cider

For us, craft cider means cider that’s pressed at our farm by a master cider maker named Paul (and a few of his local friends).

It means making cider out of proper apples. It means a cidery surrounded by orchards, not industrial equipment. It means people covered in mud and apple peels, not people in suits. Buying craft cider supports local business, the heritage and the countryside. But most of all, craft cider tastes much, much better.

Like all good cider stories, it started with an apple and a conversation! That was way back in 2000 and Paul has been obsessed with apples and flavours and making the best cider and Perry ever since!

Newton Court Cider is part of a 157 acre certified organic farm with 30 acres of cider apple and perry pear orchards. We are proud to make award winning ciders and Perries using fruit from our own orchards or from friends in Herefordshire. We pick, press, ferment and bottle everything ourselves and we squeezed just over 45 tonnes of fruit in 2015.

But in all this excitement, we haven’t forgotten our roots: our heritage line is our way of staying true to the Herefordshire tradition of craft cider making.
