Henry Weston, came to ‘The Bounds’ at Much Marcle, Herefordshire in 1878 and continued the tradition of using fruit from the farm orchards to make cider and perry. Making and drinking cider and perry formed part of the pattern of life in the country. The development of commercial cider making began in 1880 when Henry recognised the threat from overseas imports, which had been created by the British Empire. Today, our traditionally produced, award winning draught and bottled products are not only available throughout the UK, but are exported to 20 countries worldwide. From supermarkets to local off licences, in hotels, restaurants, pubs and clubs you will find Westons products, continuing in our heritage of quality.
Our wide range of ciders and perries from cloudy scrumpy through to organic, sparkling vintage, is constantly subject to strict quality control and a policy of innovation keeps us ahead of the competitive cider market. Based at the original farm ‘The Bounds’, Westons Cider employs 100 people, produces over 30 different ciders and perries, sells approximately 28 million pints a year and has a turnover of over £18 million. Part of our continued development has included our Visitors Centre, which is open to the public all year round. It comprises of an award winning courtyard garden, originally featured at the Hampton Court Palace Flower show in 2002, a Museum with cider equipment, a 1921 Steam Roller, a Traditional and Rare Breeds Farm Park, Restaurant and Shop where you can sample all our Ciders and Perries.
