30/08/2018: Cider Appreciation Day in Somerset

The next Friends of Rose & Crown Cider Appreciation Society (FRACCAS) Cider Appreciation Day is on October 27th. With a more leisurely approach this year, the event will start later in the day, leaving the Rose & Crown at about 11:30. We will be visiting just one cider farm, but what a good one. John Harris will be welcoming us to the West Croft Cider Farm where his family has been making cider the traditional way for over 100 years.

This will be at the busy time of their apple harvest, so we will see plenty of cider making action, guided around the farm and through the process by John himself, in his own inimitable, relaxed style.

An informal lunch of local cheeses, bread, sausages and pickles will follow the tour, washed down with plenty of John's most excellent products. These include a dry farmhouse cider, Janet's Jungle Juice, which is a delicious medium cider that is very easy to drink, their Sweedium, which is funnily enough between sweet and medium, and their sweet cider, which will stand its own against any dessert wine to accompany sweet courses.

There will be opportunities to purchase the products to take away and the day will end up with us being returned to the Rose & Crown for a friendly farewell cider or two before wending our weary ways home.

Costs will vary depending on numbers, but will be no more than £40 for the day as long as we can gather together a dozen souls. Call or click in the header of any page to send an email for more information and to reserve your space on the minibus.
