Cwm Maddoc Cider

Cwm Maddoc Farm , situated just South of the village of Broad Oak in Herefordshire, was at one time one of the largest estates in the parish, with more than 300 acres and a grand farmhouse. It was first referred to in the rentals of the Knights Hospitallers in 1503.  A map of about 1700 shows that the land around the barn which is now ‘Hollow Ash’ was at that time put down to orchards. 300 years later some of those orchards have been replanted with standard trees of traditional or local varieties. We named our cider Cwm Maddoc in recognition of the long tradition of apple growing here.

We have made small quantities of cider for our own use for a number of years and from 2011 made enough to enable us to offer some for sale.
