We are a family run cidermaker with our home in Sandford, Somerset. Our ciders, all full of natural apple character, are crafted here at Myrtle Farm. Pride in our heritage – we’ve been making cider for four generations – is at the heart of everything we do. Our knowledge and passion for apples is reflected in our ciders: authentic, full of flavour and with a distinct character that reflects Somerset cidermaking at its best.
Nestled at the foot of the Mendip Hills, our orchards are our pride and joy. With apples such as Dabinett, Somerset Redstreak and Katy, as well as some newer varieties such as Angela, Lizzie and Prince William, it’s here that the journey starts, inspired by the heritage and values of our company.
Our flagship brand Thatchers Gold is a full flavoured, medium dry Somerset cider, with a wonderfully rich, golden colour. Thatchers Vintage is well balanced and mature, with a distinctive depth of character, while Thatchers Haze is a premium cloudy cider that has a crisp, sweet finish. Other ciders include Thatchers Katy, Old Rascal and Green Goblin.
We’d love you to visit our Cider Shop at Myrtle Farm where our shelves are full of our ciders, alongside produce such as local cheeses and chutneys, and gifts including books and clothing.
Or why not pop into The Railway Inn, next door to Myrtle Farm in Sandford. Here a warm welcome awaits you from our friendly team. Treat yourself to a delicious meal in our restaurant, have a bar snack in our cosy bar, or simply enjoy a pint of Thatchers Somerset Cider just a stone’s throw from where it is made.
