Julian Temperley’s farm in Somerset sits among 180 acres of cider apple orchards at the base of Burrow Hill. The farm has been pressing cider for over 200 years. In the autumn over forty varieties of vintage cider apples such as Dabinett, Kingston Black, Stoke Red, Yarlington Mill and Harry Masters are harvested. Burrow Hill Cider is the only cider to have won the annual national cider championships in Devon, Somerset and Hereford in the same year. Burrow Hill draught cider is poured directly from the large oak barrels in which they are fermented and is a still traditional style.
The Somerset Cider Bus has been making its annual pilgrimage to the Glastonbury Festival for the last 43 years. Parked near the Pyramid Stage it has served farm pressed Somerset cider from wooden barrels and hot spiced cider to thousands of happy festival-goers every year.
