The Sheppy family has been making cider for at least 200 years,and have farmed 370 acres at Three Bridges Farm since 1917, where three generations of the Sheppy family have weathered the ups and downs of farming and cidermaking by embracing change and opportunity. Quality is central to all our ciders, which are produced from local and home-grown apples here at Three Bridges Farm. Modern technology has been used to assist the completely traditional production of fine English cider, but never to compromise the quality which is associated with the name Sheppy's Cider. We are proud to share with visitors from far and wide our beautiful farm and orchards, and to show you as much as possible of how and where we make our delicious ciders.
Sheppy's Cider museum isn't just a visitor attraction in the heart of Somerset, it is the heart of Somerset. For over 200 years this family have been cherishing apples and the juices held within, and cider isn't the only product they produce. I would seriously say that a visit to Somerset isn't complete without a visit to the Sheppy's Cider Museum and I would even stake my reputation on it! I was shown around by Louisa Sheppy, who is plainly proud to be part of this renowned cider-making family. The museum is home to a collection of farming and cider-making equipment, but cider-tasting in the shop is the finest way to learn about how Somerset cider is woven into the fabric of the countryside, and how it has evolved into such a popular drink with international recognition. I would definitely recommend venturing into the orchards to experience the dappled tranquillity of a historic setting. I was impressed that Sheppy's remains independent, but they havealways been a family run business and I'm sure they will continue that way for centuries to come.
