Rull Orchard

Taste Mid Devon: From Field to Glass with Rull Orchard

Rull Orchard is a cidery with an aim to work with nature, not against it. The orchard not only produces award-winning quality cider, fresh honey from their bees, and tasty fruit juices – it has also become a self-sufficient and ecologically sustainable site. They keep it simple and sustainable so every drop is infused with a little idyllic Devonshire countryside.

Mike and Claire, who run the orchard at Northdown Road in Bickleigh, have made it their mission to provide provenance on their products. They aim to increase local biodiversity by managing and promoting new wildlife, endorse ecological sustainability by using no pesticides or insecticides, and be environmentally sustainable by working on a carbon-negative footprint.

The conditions of the soil in Mid Devon make it perfect to grow fruit trees at Rull Orchard, which are then hand-picked to create unique tasting ciders and fruit juices. Mike and Claire have combined traditional and modern techniques into their cider production process to ensure the end-product is extra special. Their sparkling apple cider is a delightful and invigorating drink that captures the essence of autumnal orchards and joyous celebrations.

Mike is also one of the first pomeliers in the country, so be sure to try his rich and sweet Pomological cider which is created using a blend of the boldest apples from a neighbouring orchard that is over 130 years old! It’s big, bold and complex and pairs beautifully with cheese – the bigger the better!

You can find their award-winning products at local farmers markets across Mid Devon, as well as across Somerset and Devon. They also host on-site events in the spring and summer, so be sure to keep an eye on their socials for any up-coming events.
