The Garden Cider Company 

 

The Garden Cider Company was created in 2010 by Ben and Will Filby. They grew up with an apple tree in their garden; when they were younger it was a climbing frame, in more recent years it has become the source of their handcrafted premium cider. 

They loved making cider but were limited in the number of apples they could get. Then they came up with a really simple idea! They decided to ask for the surplus apples from other people's gardens and in return would give them some of the cider they produced. This gave them the potential to make more cider. 

Each year they have over 4,000 households who bring them their spare garden fruit. They are proud to take an abundant, largely wasted natural resource and turn it into sustainable, ethical and quality products.
