We have just completed another planting of Perry Pear varieties in the orchard. The varieties we have planted will take a while to fruit but we are sure it will be worth the wait. At the same time we have added a further 25 cider apple trees to the orchard.

The Pure North range of of mulled ciders have gone down well so far this winter. Our friends at the Sportsman in Huddersfield, the West Riding at Dewsbury and the Cricketers at Horbury have gone through gallons of the stuff with the mulled cider mixed with our home made Elderflower and Elderberry wine also proving very popular, just the thing for those cold winter days!
After being contacted by John the beekeeper from Honley, we are going ahead with preparing an area for three hives to to be situated in the orchard. The bees will be in residence in Spring just in time to enjoy the apple blossom and pollinate the trees!
After completion of the Cider Press here at Pure North, we decided to launch the cider house with a traditional wassail ceremony which brought the whole community together. This is more common in the South West but we feel it’s important to keep these traditions at Pure North. The event turned out to be a fantastic day, everyone came together to celebrate with us, and we hope the ceremony will successfully ward off evil spirits from the orchards!
We were featured in The Huddersfield Examiner who wrote a brilliant article about the event. You can even find a video of the Wassail on You Tube!
Hopefully this is the start of bigger things for Pure North, as the Cider Press in now in business, we look forward to supplying Pure North Cider products to stockists in the local area and further.

We stumbled across an article in The Guardian last saturday about the rise of traditional cider presses, and the UK’s revived love of cider.
It seems that the demand for cider is on the increase, as Cider Presses and orchards are springing up all over the country. According to the article, which appeared in the food and drink section of the paper, “it was only a matter of time before cider was rediscovered.”
…wine brewers makers and craft brewers are all converging on cider as The Next Big Thing.
So, it seems, Pure North are now setting the trend with our new purpose built cider press and a range of organic, homemade cider products. Why not try a bottle and let us know what you think? To find out where you can enjoy Pure North products see our list of stockists.
