Two Men with a Passion for Apples

Ben Totterdell and Simon Houghton have been making Cider in North Devon for years, though until recently only for their own and friends use. In 2014 a local small scale producer decided to downsize and we were presented with the opportunity to buy his excellent kit at an attractive price and so began the Green Man Cider story. Ben was born and grew up in North Curry, Somerset in the epicenter of Somerset Cider making Country. Apples, orchards and cider have always been part of things. Simon, although an Essex boy by birth has readily embraced West Country Culture including a love of fine cider. We are both passionate about our produce and keen to ensure that beautiful traditional orchards of Devon and Somerset remain an important part of our landscape., and that cider and cider making remain an expression of West Country culture and heritage.
