1974 the first of the commercial orchards contracted to Bulmers, the Hereford
cidermakers, was planted. This
enterprise has grown in recent years and today is the main farming activity
occupying 40 acres.
this time a traditional farmhouse orchard of cider apple and perry pear trees
has been maintained with a small amount of cider and perry made each year for
consumption on the farm. Since 1984
when the farmhouse was reopened after renovation the popularity of the cider and
perry with both local customers and visitors alike has resulted each year in
increasing quantities being pressed. All Broome Farm Cider and Perry is made
from whole fruit juice – once pressed the juice is allowed to ferment with its
own natural yeasts.
orchards have also been planted to supply fruit for the growing production of
Broome Farm Cider and Perry. There
are now over 70 varieties of cider apples and perry pears growing on the farm
enabling the creation of individual blends of award winning cider and perry.
farm cellar is open every day for tastings and sales straight from the barrels
and there is also a selection of bottled cider and perry available, both single
varieties and blends.
