Apple Blossom Day deep in the South West’s cider country – what a concept!
This lively family event organised by Orchard Pig, has quickly developed legendary status in the three years its been going.
Orchard Pig is a rapidly growing natural cider and apple juice maker based in Somerset. It’s the modern face of a traditional rural industry, with conservation at the heart of its message.
If you’re wondering about the pigs … they are key to the Orchard Pig brand.
Once a common sight in old Somerset orchards, pigs were used to clear the ground under the trees and flavour their own meat whilst feeding. Now they are back to eat the discarded cider and desert apples used for the Orchard Pig drinks.
