Saturday 21st January 2017
starting at 7:30pm
Our famous Wassail is on Saturday 21st January 2017 starting at 7:30pm. Buy your £10 tickets on the door for a very special evening. Your ticket includes entry and all the cider you can drink and still stay upright, snack food, singing and dancing. There'll be Ceilidh music in abundance........
My Wassail hot mulled zider is a speciality an' guaranteed to make you feel very warm inside and glowing outside!
(Oh, if you're wondering why we got a piccie of a man firing his antique flintlock musket into my zider apple trees, that's Wessex Purchase who frightens away evil spirits during our Wassail ceremony by firing his gun into the trees - t'ain't loaded with ball o'course, just black powder. 'An' e don't get no zider until after e's fired it, o'course)
Join us! Wrap up warm and don't wear them high-heels (and that goes for the girls too.....;)
PS: Don't drink and drive after my Wassail - t'aint good for anybody - why not organise a local taxi or, if you're nearby, walk? If you're coming as a group in a car always have a non-drinking nominated driver -they'll still enjoy themselves!
Have a look at last year's Wassail on Youtube
About me and the farm...
I'm Roger Wilkins and my family have been producing proper traditional cider from our farm in Mudgley Somerset for nigh on 1,000 years... well all right, not quite that long, it just seems that way.
The farm is open 7 days a week from 10:00 until 8:00, 'cept Sundays when we close at 1:00pm, so I can have a quiet Sunday lunch.
You're very welcome to come along to the farm and sample my CAMRA award-winning cider and then you'll want to buy some. Want to order cider but can't get here? I don't do any of this e-commerce stuff - just call me on 01934 712385 and I can send you the best cider in Somerset! Why not order some cheese too, while you're talking to me? Cheddar and Stilton cheese like you never tasted before, especially our un-pasteurised Cheddar - proper stuff !
You can find out what visitors say about me an' the farm by visiting TripAdvisor here.....
If you come 'ere be careful, mind, as it's a working farm and we don't have any of that fancy modern shop layout here, just barrels in my cider barn. Got wonderful tasting Cheddar and Stilton cheese and lots of fresh local vegetables, eggs, pickles and the like for sale, too.
If you're in Somerset for a holiday you can call in, get your cider and then go for a lovely walk across Westhay Moor on the Somerset Levels - appreciate the countryside, that's what I say.
Have a look at our range of cider drinking bowls and flagons. Again, just call us on 01934 712385 to order (or better still, call at the farm have a cider and then order some ;)
If you've got a few spare minutes, here's a lovely film by Adam Millbank© of me farm and making cider here.....
See you soon!
