Anybody making cider for sale these days needs to consider online sales as well as local outlets, supplying pubs or farm gate sales.
Traditional products combined with modern marketing methods have proved a fruitful combination for North Devon cider maker Peter Hartnoll of Ostler’s Cider Mill
Peter first started producing cider at Ostlers Cider Mill in Goodleigh 17 years ago and over the years has added cider vinegar and chutneys to the output from the 1,200 apple trees he planted on what was previously unused and bramble-strewn land.
Interest has grown steadily and the onset of a website has given an extra boost, with products now being dispatched nationwide.
