Due to the ongoing risk of Covid-19, Thistly Cross has taken the difficult decision to not open up our 'apples for cider' scheme to the general public over Autumn 2021.
With the emergence of new variants, we feel that we cannot safely run the scheme until everyone at Thistly Cross has been double-vaccinated.
We will still be working with a pre-agreed group of larger suppliers and landowners to ensure we receive the required continuity of supply of local apples to produce our much loved cider and apple juice. We are confident that these bulk apple loads will be able to be safely delivered and pressed.
Thistly Cross Cider would like to thank the hundreds of householders, smallholders, and community groups who have donated apples in the past and we look forward to seeing you again next year!
