Enjoy a fully immersive orchard/cider experience in the company of the McKeever Family. Walk through their various orchard plantations and witness firsthand the beautiful apple blossom in May or the laden apple trees at harvest. Learn about the whole craft cider/apple juice production from start to finish, enjoy tastings of their award winning products and sit back and relax in their new glass fronted Bramley Barn and enjoy a cuppa with granny's traditional griddle breads, cheese and chutneys.
This is a fully immersive, interactive experience on our family farm where visitors have the opportunity to meet with us the family (as all our tours are family led).
