Rich's Cider Farm at Highbridge opens new Farm Shop

Friday 1 July 2022

Their super new Farm Shop officially opened on the 1st July 2022 and to celebrate they have a selection of our new #Local suppliers alongside their own range of Ciders’s at their tasting bar! See

Established in 1954, there have been many changes since Gordon Rich started pressing cider apples at Mill Farm, although essentially the production of the juice is still traditional. They are a family run business producing traditional farmhouse cider and farm pressed apple juice, with locally harvested Somerset apples.

The Cider farm is a traditional working farm where you can visit and sample all our cider’s, before you buy. They also have a seventy seat restaurant that serves fresh locally produced, fresh home cooked food daily, and caters for Vegetarian and food allergies. Their Restaurant holds a 4.5 star rating on trip advisor.

Rich’s Cider won an award from Sedgemoor County Council, in recognition of their accomplishments regarding disability access: The whole site is Disabled friendly, including the shop, restaurant and toilet facilities.

Rich’s Cider Farm is at Watchfield, Highbridge, Somerset, TA9 4RD, which is close to Junction 22 on the M5.
