During an unplanned visit to Cornwall in early September 2011 for our honeymoon after a accident to my foot preventing us to fly to our prebooked African safari, Big Game fishing and just relaxing by the pool,
I discovered the scrumptious delights of real cider.
For many years I have had the dream to build a micro cider mill in the village as East Markham was once a prominent fruit-producing village, with horse-drawn carts that used to transport produce to the fruit and vegetable markets in Sheffield and Nottingham.
Now we have only two traditional commercial orchards left in the village with many small domestic orchards in the surrounding villages, retaining many traditional varieties which have been long forgotten.
It has been a delight creating our family-run buisness to keep our village traditions alive and to put East Markham on the map for real ciders.
