Winners of BBC Food & Farming Awards 2012 "Best Drinks Producer"!

Winners of Flavours of Herefordshire "Drinks Producer of the Year"!

We launched Once upon A Tree in May 2008, producing fine Cider, Perry and Apple Juice, all grown and bottled here at Dragon Orchard in Putley, Herefordshire.

Dragon Orchard is a small traditional fruit farm that has been tended by the Stanier family for nearly 90 years. They have been innovative in championing local food and over the past few years have helped bridge the gap between producers and consumers with the Cropsharers and Sponsor A Tree scheme, please click to find out more.

We're proud to have won many awards in such a short space of time, and I'm delighted to report that we have had to increase production this year to keep up with demand!  As well as our own shop here at the orchard and our Three Counties Cider Shop in Ledbury, we also do a number of events & shows where you can taste our juice, cider and perry, and discover more about our life on the orchard.  Keep up to date on our blog and news sections too.

Please browse our website to find out all about us and our products and feel free to drop us a line - we welcome your comments!
