Find & Foster Huxham
Naturally Sparkling Medium Sweet Fine Cider.
Huxham is the name of the orchard from which Polly and Matt pick most of the fruit for this blend. The trees are rare local eating, cooking and cider varieties. They pick the fruit as late as possible when it's very ripe, which adds an intensely rich dimension. Its deep amber colour is the result of 24 hours maceration.
Find and Foster use the ancient art of keeving to retain some of the apple's natural sugars, which gives fresh apple flavours and a concentrated fruit profile (no sugar/sweetener is added). They rely on wild yeast and use very minimal sulphites; it's unfiltered and un-fined so it's pure and rustic with a silky fine lees sediment. The cider is bottled mid primary fermentation to capture a gentle pétillance in the bottle.

About the producer
Polly and Matt seek out old orchards that they foster in Devon. Cultivating, nurturing and encouraging this precious habitat to thrive is central to their philosophy.
They work with farmers to help breathe life back into moribund orchards on their farms; to prevent further decline and the extinction of important local apple varieties.
These orchards act as a gene bank where trees have survived for a century or more unaided by chemicals such as fungicides. Their disease-resistant genes are an important resource that needs safeguarding for the future. Moreover, unlike commercial orchards, these orchards are rich in nationally rare species and an important home for diverse pollinators, birds & other wildlife.
90% of Devon's Traditional Orchards have been lost since WWII and 50% of those that remain are in poor condition due to a lack of incentive to manage them or replace fallen trees
It’s Polly and Matt’s mission to find and foster these ancient orchards, making them productive and bountiful, using their harvest to create some of the best cider in the country.
