From humble origins, cider has been made using our own and local apples for many years at Long Crendon Manor. Originally produced using a small manual butterfly press in the Butler's Pantry, the estate now has a dedicated facility with a hydraulic press capable of pressures up to 385 Bar (5500 psi) and of producing up to 7000 litres a season. The waste apple pommace is a favourite of the pigs!
Some Long Crendon Cider is still produced using our own and other local apples, however the bulk volume comes from traditional English Dabinett cider apples grown in Herefordshire.
The bottled cider is available in the Stables Farm Shop and on draught in a number of local pubs. All trade or private supply enquiries welcome.
