Here at Artistraw, we are passionate about making natural cider (no added sugar, water or sulphites- just apples). We handpick our fruit from unsprayed, low intensity traditional standard orchards in the local area. This guarantees juice suitable for the attenuated fermentation technique we practice (not to mention being very beneficial to biodiversity and entirely aligned with our own permaculture principles).
We also make a small amount of perry. Located in the Welsh Marches, just 2 miles outside the beautiful town of books Hay-on-Wye, we enjoy access to some of the most beautiful orchards and views in the country.
We are currently planting a 2.5 acre orchard just next to our cidery, which is gradually filling up with rare, local and endangered apple and perry pear varieties. Each tree has been grafted by ourselves, making what will eventually be a very special orchard. A large majority of our production is bottled, so there is something for everyone, no matter their tastes.
In the summer we occasionally open our cider garden in the evening with a pop-up food producer to offer a pleasant outside space to spend time in the company of good food, cider and friends.
