We are a cider-farm, Cidrerie Traditionnelle du Perche, set amidst rolling green hills in Normandy, in France. Our main priority is to offer top quality, environmentally-friendly products – hence the reason our premises are built to HQE (High Environmental Quality) standards and our cider apple orchards are in organic agriculture.
We harvest from the end of October and then proceed with the various stages in the cider-making process until the end of winter, when the dry and medium-sweet ciders are bottled. We take great care to respect traditional methods, whether preparing our “Trahant” and Pommeau aperitif, distilling our dry ciders to obtain a quality AOC Calvados, preparing our cider jams and apple gelées, or making our apple juice and cider vinegar.
We make pure juice ciders that ferment naturally and are bottled without any pasteurization or carbonation – a prime example of the ancestral cider-making process, guaranteeing optimum development of the aromas and truly exceptional flavours.
Our apple juices are bottled and pasteurized straight from the press. They are guaranteed pure juice, free of preservatives and additives.
Our cider jam is a slowly cooked blend of sweet cider combined with 30% sugar and it will delight anyone partial to bittersweet flavours.
Perfect on bread and with pancakes it can also be used as a very tasty complement to savoury dishes (roast port, for example).
The apple gelée is prepare with our sweet cider apples and is an absolute treat on pancakes and at breakfast !
