The Hunt family have been making cider in Paignton since the 1700′s, and moved to Higher Yalberton Farm in the 1918. William Hunt installed the press they have now just after the Second World War, and instead of selling his apples to Whiteway’s began making cider himself. Yalberton Farm has eight hectares of cider orchards and a purpose-built cider barn dating from 1832.
Today, they make about 5000 gallons a year, and still run a four hundred acre farm, keeping cattle, sheep and poultry. We also operate a small camping and caravan site (www.broadleighfarm.co.uk). Cider is sold at the farm gate, with the previous year’s cider ready to sell in July and August.
