Honey’s Cider is a well renowned cider brand started by Bob Honey and his daughter Jules in 2002, reviving the old apple orchards that had once been a central part of their farm. Honey’s has since been taken on by new owner Kimberley Jones who continues to produce a range of scrumptious, full bodied traditional ciders.
Their range includes a classic West Country cider that’s either filtered or cloudy; their unique Cider and Ginger Beer Stoney Bonk, and now their Apple Black fruit cider, all in 500ml bottles.
When the Honeys bought the farm in Midford near Bath back in 1960, the old maps – like so many in Somerset – had ‘orchard’ marked on several grass paddocks. It took 42 years, but in 2002 Bob Honey revived that tradition by planting traditional Somerset grazed orchards of big, widely spaced trees giving the sheep and cattle shade and shelter. In return they keep the grass and provide fertility to the orchard soil. In this age of globalization, we’re proud to be part of the glorious regional heritage of West Country Cider. We are working closely with other sustainable local orchards to preserve the rich tradition for generations to come.
