Haywood Farm Cider, St. Mabyn

As some of you may of noticed from the signs, Tom Bray is now selling cider from a new shop down at "Haywood Farm" along with apple juice and honey from Richard Bray's bees. 
During the summer the shop is open every day from 9:30am-7.00pm. 
Wednesday evenings (and Fridays if requested)Tom does a tour of his 14 acres of orchards followed by a barbecue and cider sampling.  A relaxed evening combining good food with good cider and some horticulture thrown in for good measure.  Individuals and groups very welcome.  £12.50 a head, pre book only please.  

On the afternoon of the 7th of July Tom is offering an opportunity for anyone interested to come along to Haywood Farm for a guided orchard tour followed by a barbecue and cider sampling with live music. The first orchard tour is at 2pm and again around 3pm. Learn about the apples grown at Haywood, tips on growing apples in Cornwall and a demonstration on propagating apple trees. Barbecue and a chance to sample and buy the cider all accompanied by live music from "Tjaye Martin". An acoustic singer songwriter, coming all the way from Bristol as she's heard the ciders good!
Cost is  £5 which includes the tour, samples and a glass of cider. Bbq extra.
No need to book for the 7th but if you are planning on coming along a quick call or text would be useful for gauging numbers. 01208 840140 or 07919182196
Hope to see you soon!

We have just returned from a week staying at St Mabyn (Wheelright House) and I have to say that one of my favourite trips was that which I made to stock up with Haywood's Cider.

What was initially a curiosity based on my name turned out to be regular.

The cider was terrific and the time spent talking to Tom was really enjoyable. I hope to go back some time.

My personal recommendation on the cider is a 50:50 mix between the Sweet and Medium.
