Next Open Day September 2021!

Thatchers Cider, Myrtle Farm, Sandford, Somerset, BS25 5RA


The doors of Myrtle Farm will next be opening September 2021 for our Family Open Day. We’d love you to join us!

There’ll be tours of the orchards as harvest gets underway. Hear about the varieties of apples we grow at Myrtle Farm and why the Somerset soil and mild climate is ideal for the bittersweet apples that go into our ciders. We’ll have tours of our mill where our ciders are made, and of the 150 year old oak vats where they mature.

Then onto the bottling hall and canning lines – here an amazing 30,000 cans an hour can be filled with cider!

Join us for:

Trailer tours of the orchards • Guided tours running throughout the day of our cidermaking, canning and bottling lines • See our gigantic oak vats • Apple pressing • Children’s entertainment • Sports activities for the youngsters • Live music from Black Jacks, The Floor Shiners and Southern Sons. • Mendip Morris • Craft stalls • Cider tasting • BBQ • Pizza oven and live music at The Railway Inn
