Lovely Drinks

Lovely Drinks

Lovely Drink make delicious drinks from handpicked elderflowers, whole lemons, pressed West Country apples and other English fruits and flowers. Their drinks are all free from artificial flavourings and concentrates.

Lovely Drinks began as a hobby in their potting shed when they started making elderflower presse with the blossoms in the garden and nearby hedgerows. Friends and family kept remarking on how ‘lovely’ it was…and so the Lovely Drinks business was born.

Sheppy's Cider

Sheppy's Cider

Sheppy's Farm

  • That’s 370 acres of lovely, fertile Somerset.
  • Three Bridges Farm: Arable crops of wheat, oats, barley, field beans and grass ley are grown in rotation over approximately 250 acres. Cereal crops are harvested in July, August and September, and are used for sale and to produce cattle feed for the farm.

Sheppy's Orchards

  • There are 55 acres of cider apple orchards, about half of which are standard trees and half are bush trees. A standard tree is produced from a root stock and builds a good ‘stem’ or trunk which has no branches for 6 feet. It does not produce a good crop of apples for about 15 years, and its best yield is between the ages of 30-60 years.

The Farm and Environment

  • Very little goes to waste on the farm. There pommace (dry apple pulp after pressing) goes for cattle feed, pruned apple wood is used for logs by family and staff, wood chippings are used for surfacing and even their biodegradable packaging waste is used as cattle bedding.

Great Western Brewery

Great Western Brewery

We believe in 'Hand-Crafted' beer. The Great Western Brewing Company is a microbrewery brewery based in Bristol. We brew beer that is unfiltered, unpasteurized and full of flavour – the sort of beer we enjoy drinking and we hope you enjoy drinking, too.

We are a small, family run independent brewery, and we brew all our beer ourselves, on site with our own borehole.
