After the success of last years Cider season, we decided to upgrade our kit. A brand new press will allow us to get more juice our of the same amount of apples. The mill chops and shreds the apples finer to extract even more of the juice. Exciting times ahead, never looked forward to autumn so much.
Growing up, Howden Agricultural Show was an annual event for my family. My Mum was born in neighbouring Goole and later my Grandparents lived in Howden. Their house had quite a bit of land and I will always remember the time fond times I spent with my Grandad pruning and looking after His apple trees. His favourite variety was James Grieve. Maybe this was the start of my love for all things apple related.
So from walking around and enjoying this event, I have come full circle and now will be aiming to distribute our cider with help from the Jug and Bottle, Bubwith. Come along to sample many different ciders, including Colemans Dry Cider.
After a visit, some would say fate played its part, I visited the Jug and Bottle, Bubwith on Saturday to see the vast array of ciders. The variety included bottled and draught cider, the latter can be taken home in flagon style jugs. The upshot of this impromptu visit was the chance to take part in a cider tasting event on the 4th April, Easter Saturday. If you get chance to pop by, come and taste what is on offer.

Colemans got together on Tuesday night to discuss the events and jobs for the next month. Busy time ahead. Get in touch through the contact form, or via email if you might have spare apples in the autumn.
Well here we are! Finally up and running with a website to tell everyone about Colemans and our fantastic Yorkshire Craft Cider.
