‘Sandford Orchards are at the forefront of cider makers emerging from the ‘small scale’ end of the spectrum and into the no man’s land that is ‘medium scale’, so crucial for cider’s visibility and continued growth.’
‘Nobody is currently doing more to make the cider-making world more democratic or viable for collective growth than Barny.’
Gabe Cook in Modern British Cider .
‘Sandford Orchards occupy an almost unique role in British cider. They manage the balance of being a commercial-scale cidery whose output in 2019 was 1.5 million litres whilst also one whose product I actively look for in pubs because I know it to be made by people who truly, deeply care about cider and about making something interesting that reflects much-treasured apple varieties.’
Adam Wells in Cider Review Six ciders from Sandford Orchards | Cider Review (cider-review.com)
This is a unique opportunity to chat with Barny ‘the cider realist’ and chief cider maker Andy May – the principles and philosophy that they continue to stick to while building up one of the biggest #NotFromConcentrate cider companies in the country.
