WORKING WITH US
Thatchers Cider is a family run business based in Sandford, Somerset.
We’ve been making cider at Myrtle Farm since 1904. And while we’ve moved with the times some things stay the same – the care, dedication and passion that goes into our craft from start to finish.
The heart of everything we do
We see all our employees as an extension of the Thatcher family.
We’re a brand with a real story. At the heart of that story are the people who’ve contributed to our expertise and craft over time.
We never forget our Somerset roots. So we recruit from local talent and support and partner with local communities and businesses.
We embed expertise across the business in pursuit of the highest quality. From the best apples, processes and machinery, to the very best people we can find.
Our vision is to create a world-famous cider making business that works in harmony with the natural world, not against it.
Everyone has a role to play in a family.
And it’s the same here at Thatchers. We’re an action-orientated, adaptable, and resourceful bunch, competing in an exciting and competitive marketplace.
THIRST FOR KNOWLEDGE
When we work together we achieve great things. So we encourage curiosity and sharing ideas to inspire a passion for quality cider that’s enjoyed around the world.
RIGHT PEOPLE. RIGHT JOB
We invest a lot in our teams, and have a particular focus on supporting people to develop their knowledge and expertise so we can promote from within.
As a company we are focused on succession planning making sure we are upskilling our workers to meet the demands on modern day operations and planning for the next generation of the Thatcher family.
