I've just had a nice little result.

Earlier in the year, a couple bought some 75cl bottles of our own pressed apple juice from us. I remember them saying that they owned a holiday cottage and that they liked to place local produce in it for their  customers.
Just a few moments ago, they came back and bought 25 more bottles from us. I had to try not to look too suprised but it was nice to sell so much in one go and even more pleasing to have yet more proof that people really do appreciate our product. We've started to get quite a bit of repeat custom and its a nice feeling.

Thats great news.

Yesterday I was in the Tom Cobley pub in Spreyton and they have been awarded Cider pub of the year.  They had 16 ciders on tap!!
Ive tried Sam's dry and Sam's medium from Winkleigh, but there wer a few from Devon I hadnt heard of.  Devon Mist from Sandford Orchards, and another from Broadoak (who I also hadnt heard of).

Im trying to visit St Ives cider next week.

The trouble is visiting,...and sampling...you really cant do too much and drive - a real pain.

What are husbands for ? Or you could always pack a tent.  Tomorrow night, I'll be sampling some more Broome Farm cider. Strictly for market research purpose of course.

Repeat business and word of mouth advertising, the two greatest assets a business can have, well done!
