Local Food & Drink

Somerset has a well-deserved and far reaching reputation for the quality of the food and drink it produces whether it is cheese from the cows enjoying the rich pastures, fish from the rivers and sea or fruit from the orchards and fields.

A number of nationally known businesses are based in the County where they are close to their supplies of fresh produce but there are also hundreds of smaller producers who have found their own recipes and markets for the riches the countryside here has to offer.

You can sample jam from the elusive Wortleberry, taste farmhouse cheese matured in underground caves and go on a food safari on Exmoor where, among other things, you can catch, cook and eat your own trout.

Apple orchards are a vital part of the Somerset landscape, producing many varieties of cider and apple juice, with a number of nationally recognised brands based in the county.

Many of the cider farms are now geared up for visitors and you will always be able to sample the produce.

Check out the Somerset Cider & Apple Juice Map and start exploring...
