In October 2011 at Myncen Farm, Cranborne Chase Cider was formed.
Bill Meaden set out pressing fruit from an unused orchard in Minchington on a homemade cider press. As the business grew from hobby to full-time, extra fruit was sourced from Dorset orchards and more trees were planted. Bill now produces a range of award-winning still & carbonated ciders available in bottles and boxes that can be purchased direct from the farm gate and online.
Cranborne Chase Cider is stocked in pubs & shops throughout Dorset and can also be found at a number of the county’s music festivals & events.
