Fosseway Cider first made a small batch of cider just over three years ago and have not looked back since. They have been nominated as Best Drink Producer in the Blackmore Vale Taste of Somerset awards and won a Second in class at this year's Royal Bath & West of England Show.

The Orchard Pig Cider produce wonderful, lightly sparkling ciders. These premium ciders are made from a mix of over 10 varieties of hand-graded apples, harvested from unsprayed and naturally maintained orchards. Crushed, pressed and fermented, the ciders are matured for at least six months to produce the depth of flavour that is proving so popular.

West Croft Cider is a traditional cider farm, located at the foot of Brent Knoll and within reach of Burnham-on-Sea and Brean. Established by John Harris 5 years ago, the award winning ciders have a reputation that reaches far and wide. In 2007 West Croft Janet's Jungle Juice was voted Champion Cider of Great Britain in 2007 by CAMRA (at a blind tasting of over 150 ciders). It was also runner up in 2008.
