Experience hosted by Katherine And Tino

3 hours
Includes food, drinks
Up to 4 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

Guests will be welcomed to Lemons Farm and taken up to our private orchard to be given a briefing on the apples, cider production and the local area. Guests will be able to select from number of apple varieties, pick, pulp, press and then pasteurise for apple juice or pack away for cider production and take their produce home with them. Guests will be treated to a ploughman's lunch (morning experiences) or afternoon tea (afternoon experiences).

We will set guests off with a map of the orchard to pick their favourite varieties, then will guide them through the process of pulping and pressing and then bottling their juices. Guests can then either pasteurise their juice or receive instructions on how to ferment at home into scrumptious cider.

The experience lasts three hours (around two hours to press and sample and then an hour for lunch/tea). Guests will be able to take home all the juice they are able to press during this time, either in their own bottles or in ours. There will be tea and coffee making facilities on site and guests will also be able to swill down their own freshly pressed juice.

Our experience gives guests who don't have access to their own apples the opportunity to create their own home pressed juice or cider to take away all from a beautiful, traditional cider orchard.

We are Katherine and Tino and we live and work at Lemons Farm hosting guests in our annex, glamping boat and apple pressing days. Since moving into our home in 2016, we have spent three Autumns in our orchard, picking, pressing and producing gallons of delicious apple juice and scrumptious cider. We have studied the traditional Devon cider production techniques, from the best apples to pick, through how to press them and filter, pasteurise and preserve the delicious juice. We have developed this knowledge to teaching friends and neighbours and we love sharing both our apples and expertise in a unique experience in our own orchard overlooking the beautiful Taw Valley. As Airbnb superhosts for the past three years, we love welcoming people to our beautiful home and sharing our traditional Devon lifestyle.

This was a great afternoon for us. Tino gave us some great information on the varieties of apples in the orchard. He was great at answering our questions about the varieties and the equipment. Very personable and both Katherine and Tino were very good about our dog who can be a handful at times. The afternoon tea was also delicious and being able to have that overlooking the orchard and surrounding countryside was lovely. Would very much recommend this experience.

Unforgettable experience. This was truly a unique and incredibly fun time. The Lemons Farm had approx. 20 trees with all different varieties of apples. Katherine and Tino were genuine and thoughtful hosts. They made the experience feel authentic and the apple juice was soo tasty. We were able to take home delicious jugs of both fresh and pasteurized juice, lots of photos and incredible memories. Thank you! Will definitely be back.

This was a very unique and interesting experience. We enjoyed walking around the orchard tasting apples from the tree then selected our favourites to pick for juice that we pressed ourselves. Hosts were very friendly and welcoming. Lunch was excellent. We highly recommend this to anyone visiting Devon.

Thoroughly enjoyable time spent with Katherine and Tino. Very knowledgable and friendly hosts, Tino guided us through the process of choosing and collecting our apples to press and produce juice that we could pasteurise and take home with us. Lunch was excellent, if not home made items were locally sourced. Would definitely recommend this experience.
