Heritage Museum & Orchard Walks

Museum

Enhance your visit, walk around our stunning orchards and historical museum

We like our customers to make the most of their time with us. We hope here you find plenty of information about our museum and orchard walks to help enhance your visit.

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 our  DVD of the cider-making year here at Sheppy’s Cider. Leaving the DVD, the museum collection exhibits depict the late Autumn season, with ploughs, harrows and seed drills.

When 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 which include the giant old wooden press, apple scratters and presses, and a great deal more.

We consider our orchards one of the most pleasant, picturesque experiences in the summer time as the trees blossom and the apples begin to grow. During the months of October and November we harvest our apples and we love our customer to experience this. The colours are exquisite and the sun shining through the trees is the most memorable experience.

Visiting our museum and orchards are free of charge. We also have picnic benches and a children’s playground as you walk down toward the orchards. Please use our facilities freely and when your finished we would be delighted to welcome you into Sheppy’s House of Cider & Fine Foods for a cider tasting after you walks.

We’d love you to upload your pictures to our Facebook page and Instagram so we can share them with all of our customers.
