Haywood Farm is located in the beautiful Allen Valley, near the village of St. Mabyn, approximately 4 miles from Wadebridge. The Bray family have farmed here since 1919, but cider has been produced on the farm’s granite cider press for centuries, supplying the families and labourers with the Westcountry’s favourite drink. Tom Bray started making cider with a group of friends in 2003, and since then his enthusiasm, passion and expertise have continued to grow. Over the last five years, he has propagated and planted fourteen acres of orchards, carefully selecting varieties for their quality and suitability to the Cornish climate, all helping to create top-quality cider. You can enjoy a walking tour of the extensive orchards and learn about the varieties of apples grown for cider and juice and also get tips on growing apples. Regular events are held in the cider house where you can join in the barbecue and most importantly sample some of the cider.
