Apple County Cider Co is the creation of the award winning cider producer Ben Culpin and his wife Steph. Ben has been producing cider for six years, during which time he has won numerous awards including Great Taste and The Welsh Cider and Perry Championships. Ben’s cider has won acclaim from chefs, critics, writers and food enthusiasts – ‘foodies’ - alike.
The company is based at Whitehouse Farm, near Skenfrith in Monmouthshire. The farm grows cider apples and blackcurrants in fields looking across the stunning landscape of the Monnow Valley. There’s a cider shop where Apple County also hold cider tasting and sell local produce; when you buy cider here you are likely to be talking to the cidermaker himself.
Enjoy an orchard walk around the farm taking in different ages and styles of orchards with views down the Monnow Valley. Pick up a guide at the cider shop.
