Cider

Artisan cider from the borders of Somerset and Dorset

We make a range of fine ciders from the pressed juice of the autumn harvest. We allow the juice to ferment slowly and naturally over the winter and spring months to allow the complex flavours to develop. Unlike more commercial ciders we don't make concentrate and reconstitute to set recipes. We pride ourselves on the consistent quality of our ciders are frequently rewarded with prizes year on year.
We achieve this by the careful selection of the apples prior to pressing and during pressing.

Bag in the Box ciders

We are able to supply our traditional still ciders in 5,10 and 20lt bag in the boxes, these come with a built in tap to dispense your favourite cider. Always available as Dry, Medium and Sweet either direct from the farm shop or via mail order. We can process card payments over the phone. We are also able to supply these to trade customers, to set up an account please email us or phone the farm for our trade prices.

500ml Sparkling Ciders

Our range includes what we think may be the first true session cider at 3.8% abv, bottle conditioned to make it naturally sparkling, winning at the Devon County show in 2012 and taking second place in 2013. It is satisfyingly refreshing with full orchard fruitiness, whilst maintaining the West country cider characteristics that Bridge Farm are well known for. We also offer a 6.5% abv Medium sparkling cider, shown here in its royal livery-did you know we presented this to the Queen personally? It is full bodied and robust yet with a modern twist. Our final offering is a deliciously summery Perry / Pear cider, you decide on the semantics, all we know is that it is medium dry, refreshing and a winner!

500ml Still Medium Cider

We offer a Medium still traditional cider in a 500ml bottle, a lovely addition to any pub or bar cider offering! A classic somerset cider with an apple and blossom aroma with some honey sweetness.

750ml Ciders

We offer Dry, Medium, Sweet and our award winning Perry in 750ml bottles, they are available individually in the farm shop or by the case of 12 to the trade. Our still perry won the the Three Counties Show in Malvern in 2013.

Single variety ciders

Our single variety ciders are very much dependant on the growing season, however we do try to press Kingston Black, Porters Perfection and Dabinett most seasons. We also offer Brown Snout and Browns when the crop is good. We also make a fine still Perry with locally hand picked pears, these are all available in 20lt bag in the boxes.
