Founder of Find & Foster, Polly Hilton & her husband Mat, find neglected orchards in Devon and foster them, returning them to health and productivity through pruning, mowing, grafting and planting new trees. In return for their work they collect the apples that would otherwise go to waste, and use them to produce the finest award winning ciders using winemaking techniques. The incredible rare apple varieties they find in these ancient orchards create totally unique, rich and sumptuous ciders.
They manage the orchards using no chemical input: no pesticides, herbicides or inorganic fertilisers. Their ciders are created using minimal intervention. They’re handpicked, pressed in small batches, with minimal or zero sulphite addition and no filtration.
