Perry Pear juice

Three main Perry Pear varieties are grown on our farm with a minimal intervention from chemicals and utmost respect to soil and plant nutrition. These are named Antricotin, Fausset and Longbois. We go on to carefully squeeze them on site using our Amos belt press.

My ancestor, viscount Scudamore, is credited with introducing cider apples from France to the UK in the 17th century. In a small way it felt like history repeating itself when I travelled to France in 2010 to select these varieties of Perry pears as there had been a lot more research conducted there into Perry pear varieties.
