Abbey Orchard at Ampleforth Abbey

Details

Our Apple Orchard and Cider Mill are located on Aumit Lane, opposite the St Alban's Sports Centre.

For more than 200 years the monks of Ampleforth Abbey in North Yorkshire have been growing apples. Today, with more than 2,500 trees growing over 10 acres, the Ampleforth Abbey Orchard is one of the largest commercial orchards in the North of England. A succession of more than 50 varieties of apple ripen naturally between August and January in our traditionally managed orchards. Our full juice cider is crafted from a blend of dessert and culinary apples, pressed in our own Cider Mill where it is fermented and matured for eight months. Why not come and see the Orchard in bloom and find out more about our hand crafted drinks production.
