We’ve had a lot to celebrate lately at Apple County Cider. Not only have we recently turned 3 –happy birthday to us! – but we’ve also won a couple of super snazzy awards…
Steph and Francis have been busy exploring the perfect Father’s Day celebration for Ben, and came up with such brilliant ideas, we thought we’d better share them with you!
With the launch of our new bag-in-boxes and some exciting new flavours to boot, we thought that for this blog we’d focus on traditional cider, or ‘Scrumpy’ as it’s sometimes known, and how you can enjoy it this May…
We’re feel very lucky here at Apple County to be living in such a stunning part of the country. If you’re anything like us, now that the longer days have arrived and the sun is shining, you’ll want to be spending as much time as possible outside…
Spring has officially sprung here at Apple County and the welsh countryside is looking glorious in the sunshine – the daffodils are out, the grass is green and luscious, and we can hear lambs calling out to their mothers in the nearby fields.

It’s been a busy time in the orchards, harvesting this year’s beautiful apples & Winter has crept up on us! Here at Apple County, Winter means our precious fresh juice is brought into the barn.

Every single harvest is different in the life of a cider farm, so whilst next year’s scrumptious ciders are safely bubbling away, we can come in from the orchards and turn our attention to the wintery warmth that our cider can bring. Curling up with a good book, by the fire, with a mug of smooth, comforting mulled cider is something we look forward to every year! Continue reading Winter Warmers In Festive Flavours!
Apple County launches in Japan!
It’s hard to beat the buzz of a great food festival on a sunny weekend. And Abergavenny Food Festival would certainly take some beating! Only a little over 10 miles from our orchards, we love to see this great local town swathed in stalls and flooded with foodies. It’s a truely premier league food festival, with over 30,000 visitors drawn from far and wide to Abergavenny for one delicious weekend. Continue reading The Awesome, Abergavenny Food Festival
