Our Roots

Ours is a story that goes deep. Deep into the rugged heartlands of Devon, the true home of cider.

Our Apples

Ground in vivid, red soil; crisscrossed by ancient orchards and bound by its own microclimate, our lush green corner of Devon is the finest place on earth to grow cider apples. That’s why we only select apples grown within 30 miles of our press.

Our Methods

We make cider properly. We take our learnings from the traditional Devonshire cider makers of yesteryear and shape their techniques for the modern era. We only ever make cider from naturally fermented, freshly pressed juice. No concentrates, no artificial flavours or aromas.

Our Craft

Good cider needs time to develop.  Every pint of Sandford Orchards is blended from cider matured between 6 months and 3 years, to develop the rich, smooth complexity that makes our cider special.

Our Promise

Every drop of Sandford Orchards cider is made by us. From the beginning, our aim has been simple; to produce top quality ciders from the finest Devon cider apples, like generations of Crediton cider makers before us. It’s how we did it in 2002 and how we always will. Proudly, True to our Roots.

Our Mission

The Cider Works, originally built in 1935 for The Creedy Valley Cider Company is our home. This beautiful old building has been the beating heart of Devon cider for nearly a century and we are extremely proud to have restored it to its true purpose as we continue on our mission to make Devon cider great again.
