Make your visit even more memorable with walk around our stunning orchards and historical museum.
The museum collection was put together by Richard Sheppy in the 1970s. It includes many farming and cider making exhibits, as well as tools from associated crafts. Your visit begins with a short film about the cider-making year at Sheppy’s, followed by an exhibit depicting the late Autumn season, with ploughs, harrows and seed drills.
You progress through the museum to the summer season, where implements and machinery for grass mowing, corn cutting and binding can be seen. Passing a variety of barn equipment and machinery, you will arrive at the kitchen and farm dairy section. The cider-making exhibits follow and include the giant old wooden press, apple scratters and presses, and a great deal more.
A walk through our orchards is one of the most picturesque experiences you can have in the summer as our trees blossom and the apples begin to grow. During October and November we harvest our apples and love to let our customers experience the excitement with us. The colours are exquisite and the sun shining through the trees is a highly memorable experience.
A small charge applies to our museum, but the orchards are free for our visitors to enjoy. We also have picnic benches and a children’s playground as you walk down toward the orchards, so please use our facilities freely. When you're finished we would be delighted to welcome you into Sheppy's House of Cider & Fine Foods for some well deserved refreshment.
