Little Cider Press Company does not offer tours as such, but when pressing is taking place in the autumn, everyone is welcome to get involved. There is no minimum age, but young children will need supervision.
Since the pressing takes place outside, access for wheelchairs should be fine.

Deborah and Nigel Davies' Little Cider Press Company is what it says on the tin: a mobile cider press that travels to where the apples or pears are when necessary to do the pressing. "Make your own cider with us," Deborah tells DrinkBritain.com, adding that they can help supply the minimum 50kg fruit (two potato sacks) needed if you don't have quite enough.
With their extensive experience of making artisanal cider, Deborah and Nigel also offer advice to others intent on creating fine cider and perry.
- Big Apple Harvestime – each year Little Cider Press organise events for both days, often including a pressing at The Crown Inn pub in Woolhope.
- Each cider maker takes their waste pulp home for compost – or for pig or cattle feed
- Customers are encouraged to re-use their cider containers the next year
Train: Ledbury, 7 miles
