"loved each and every detail of your orchard. Thank you for taking
the time to give us your tours and explain how it all came to be... from
the stones, to the equipment, the history - it was wonderful and the
highlight of my trip! "
"I've taken many distillery tours but this was memorable simply for the personalization of the tour they offered. "
"the history of the farm, which was fascinating. ...... great insights into what life is like on the farm and discussing what goes into the various products they make (Ciders, Brandy, Gin etc.). The grounds are amazing. From the beautiful rows of apple frees, to the horses and geese, I really felt like I was getting back to nature. "
