Oliver’s Cider & Perry

www.oliversciderandperry.co.uk

Here at Oliver’s Cider and Perry we make cider and perry for everyday enjoyment and special occasions.

Wild yeasts in small batches ferment the cider and perry, using fresh pressed (mostly hand picked and unsprayed) fruit with minimal intervention. We strive to “take what the fruit gives”, respecting the great heritage and traditions of the past but with an eye to innovating for the future.

Butford Organics

www.butfordorganics.co.uk

Cider has been made at Butford Farm for many a long year – one of our barns boasts a 300 year old cider mill. To carry on this heritage, Janet and Martin Harris planted their first fruit trees in 2000 – a millennium orchard of cider and dessert apples, perry pears, plums and walnut trees which is now in full production.

We make a full range of ciders and perries from still draught to sparkling bottle conditioned as well as named variety apple juices. We do every part of the production process here at the Farm thus ensuring quality control from harvesting to relaxing with that satisfying glass of cider.

Ludlow Nut Company

Our Story - in a 'nutshell'!

We are Helen and Bob, and we set up the Ludlow Nut Company in 2004. Previously, I was director of travel in a company based in the City of London and Bob pursued a career in Local Government. 

Escaping from city and corporate life is a dream for so many people, and that’s exactly what we did, we upped sticks from London and moved to the medieval market town of Ludlow in Shropshire.

The challenge of running my own business and my interest in nutrition and healthy eating inspired me to take the plunge with Bob and set up the Ludlow Nut Company. Our very first products were quality, heart-healthy dried fruits and nuts. 

We now make a wide range of healthy food for busy people including luxury porridges, mueslis, granolas and a range of nut & seed butters. We also supply an array of best quality nuts, seeds, dried fruits, superfoods and sweet and savoury snacks. So if you’re a home baker of cakes or breads do check our selection. Sometimes a little indulgence is a good thing.
