Surrounded by nature, the orchards are also home to sixteen Irish honeybee colonies that pollinate the entire orchard James believes in the terroir of the cider and is an avid cider maker. “As a lover of nature, growing apples and creating the perfect cider requires time, attention to detail and dedication. The process starts with the careful management of the soils of our orchards, coupled with dedicated care, maintenance, and plant husbandry to grow the perfect apples and catches the terroir in a bottle of our cider.
