Multi-award winning Cranborne Chase Cider are based on a family farm near Cashmoor in the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Using only Dorset grown apples they produce still farmhouse cider and carbonated bottled ciders. The cider is made from all natural ingredients and are gluten free, vegan friendly & contain no added sulphites.
Their cider is stocked in pubs throughout Dorset & can also be found at a number of the county’s music festivals & events.
Cranborne Chase Cider have their own mobile bar ‘The Cider Shack’ which is available for hire for private parties and events.
Cider is available to purchase from the on-farm shop, ‘The Original Cider Shack’ which is a traditional shepherds hut. To find them take the A354 to Cashmoor and then just follow the ‘Cider’ signs. The shop regularly stocks traditional still cider and bottled cider. For larger orders, bag-in-boxes are available to pre-order. There is often fresh produce to purchase; Pumpkins in October, Christmas Trees in December, kindling throughout the winter months, home made jams, chutneys & free-range eggs when the hens are behaving themselves! The farm is also the home of ‘Dorset Bench Hire’, so you can test out the picnic benches whilst drinking cider.
Should cider not be your thing, then there is plenty to keep you entertained with the family farm hosting a number of events throughout the year. The farm has a long history & featured on Time Team in 2004 'Bodies on the Cranborne Chase or Brimming with Remains', to celebrate these archeological finds there is a small shepherd’s hut museum which you might get to see if you are lucky.
