As the cider making season swings into full drive…

I’m very happy to announce that the Scrumping projects 40 gallons of prime South Glos apple juice has finally started to ferment, even the stubborn Kingston Black tub has bubbled into life . I haven’t got a sexy shot of the fermenting tubs in my garage ( a challenge too far for even the greatest of photographers) but below is a shot taken at Thatchers Cider last week. The place was on fire, processing English apples from both Somerset and Herefordshire.

I visited Thatchers cider farm on friday to find the place a hive of activity with the sound of a million apples being tipped into their huge pits, with an energy that shook any remaining apples from the trees of  the surrounding north somerset orchards.
