Our family bought our 7.5-acre property, Meadowbrook Corner, in 2004 with the express purpose of creating a farm-based cidery using heritage apple trees of British, French, and German cider varieties. Since then we have planted over 700 trees of 48 different varieties of in-house grafted seedlings and are continually adding to our orchards each year. The working farm is also home to our sheep and lambs which graze in the open livestock fields, as well as an edible garden that is incorporated into the menu of the adjoining Meadowbrook Market.
All fermentation, blending, and bottling happens on-site by experienced Cidermakers Alastair Johnstone and eldest son Benjamin, aided by younger son Nicholas. Our team consists of family members and close friends with a long history on the island who assist with all aspects of the business and the farm.
