Woodredding's ciders and perries in Herefordshire at Woodredding Farm, where cider has been made for over 200 years. The present orchard dates to 1959 and, after a lapse in cidermaking during which the apples were supplied to Westons, in 2007 Fran and Brian Robbins revived the 18th century press and brought it back into action making small quantities for family and friends.
Brian and Fran were encouraged to increase their production, and since then have gone from strength to strength. In 2009 they planted new perry pear trees on their farm, which is in sight of the famous May Hill, have planted additional cider apple trees and have swept up a number of prestigious awards. More recent awards include Silver at the Royal Bath and West Show 2019 for Jack's Tipple and Yarlington Mill, Second place at the Royal Three Counties 2019 for Jack's Tipple, First Price Winner at the 2018 Big Apple Perry Trials and winner of the Lawrence Reilly Perry Cup at the 2017 British Cider Championships.
They mill and press the fruit from their orchards onsite, and harness natural wild yeasts to ferment the juice.
