Award-winning cidermakers Saxby’s Cider is now offering private group tours at the family farm in Farndish, near Wellingborough, as well as Cidery Tours and Cider & Cocktail Picnic Tours open to the general public twice a month, one on a Thursday evening and one on a Saturday.

The Cidery Tour is £15 per person with a welcome drink; the Cider & Cocktail Picnic Tour is £30 per person with a Ploughman’s picnic al fresco in the orchard served with Saxby’s Cider and Sloe Gin cocktails.  The private group tours need a minimum of ten and a maximum of twenty guests and have already been booked by organisations such as local WIs, U3As and Young Farmers groups.  The organiser can choose the time and date to suit; Phil Saxby and his team can do day time or evenings and some weekends if they are not already out at an event.

Both tours include a talk on the history of how Saxby’s Cider came to be, a tour of the cidery and a trailer ride round the orchards and a tasting of the ciders.   You will also receive a voucher for £5 off purchases made in the shop on the day.  If  you are buying this as a gift online you can choose a gift voucher option instead of a date to be sent to you for you to pass on so the lucky recipient can choose when they come on a tour.

Saxby’s Cider is widely used in local pubs and restaurants and available to buy from several outlets and at local markets.  A shop was opened at the farm in 2017, and an on-line shopping facility with national delivery is available from the website.
