Healeys Cider?

Did anyone watch Caroline Quintins 'Cornwall' on ITV last night? We did and it was very good. They visited Healey's Cider and it was well worth the watch. I now have the programme recorded.

It gave me the thought as to how far it might be possible for us to go with our cider making.

The actual tour at Healeys is not great, but they do tractor rides through the orchards (if its ever dry to do this ).
They are doing a massive extension of the business at present.

They said that they had around 3000 tress on the programme but went on to say that they made 12 million litres of cider, which didn't really make sense to me.

they buy a lot of apples in (so do Cornish orchards)

Ahaaa!  I have two lots of cider to try this month with a view to buying some in. Its cider made with cider apples and I buy in, so that I can blend it it with my own cider thats made with eaters and cookers. In a few years time, I should be growing enough of my own cider apples so that I don't have to go down this route.
