Mill Farm, Watchfield, TA9 4RD
Cider Farm Shop in Somerset, near Burnham on Sea
At Rich’s Cider Farm we have been making Somerset cider since 1954. Gordon and Betty Rich came to Mill Farm, Watchfield, over 60 years ago and began pressing Somerset apples to produce Rich’s Traditional Farmhouse Cider.
We harvest apples from local orchards in Somerset, pressing the apples on the farm using the original presses and the rack and cloth method. The juice is then matured in our aged oak vats, before being bottled and packaged on the farm.
Rich’s Cider Farm is open to the public all year round. We are a family friendly attraction located only 2 miles from junction 22, with free admission and disabled access to all public areas.
The Cider Shop
Our draft ciders come straight from the barrel so you can ‘try before you buy’. The shop also stocks a superb range of food, drinks and gifts. We are passionate about supporting local suppliers and have specially selected everything from our locally made pottery, to local cheese, chutneys and honey!
Vintage farm machinery gallery
We have a small collection of vintage farm machinery and cider making equipment showing the history of Rich’s Cider. Don’t forget to have a look at our beautifully restored Bedford lorry that has been in the family since 1939.
The Cider Press Restaurant
We are open seven days a week 8.30am – 5pm serving breakfasts, lunchtime specials, homemade cakes and desserts, cream teas and roast dinners. We serve locally sourced, freshly prepared food in our ‘open plan’ kitchen. Here you can watch our cooks busy baking homemade cakes, desserts, pies and all our daily roasts and specials. As supporters of local farmers and producers, we aim to provide you with a ‘True Taste of Somerset.’ It is advisable to book in advance for our popular Sunday carvery. Next to the restaurant, we also have a children’s play area to entertain the little ones.
In autumn you can watch us hard at work apple pressing and you will see our trailers arriving full of apples that have been picked by us in local orchards.
