Visitor numbers soar as Cyder Farm becomes one of Cornwall’s most popular attractions
Published 8th January, 2016 by Healeys Cyder Farm in Press
Our award winning Cornish cider farm has become one of the county’s most popular tourist destinations with over 400,000 people visiting the attraction last year.
Healeys Cornish Cyder Farm is the largest cider maker and orchard in Cornwall and famous for brewing and bottling a range of ciders, wines and fruit juices.
Guided tours, tractor rides, free cider tastings and a menagerie of animals have all helped to entice huge numbers of visitors to the family-run business near Truro over the past 12 months.
And thanks to major investments including the opening of a new visitor centre along with a new production facility, numbers are expected to continue to rise further throughout 2016.
Joe Healey, Commercial Director at Healeys Cornish Cyder Farm, said: “We are really pleased to have welcomed so many people to the farm this year, showing them everything from the art of cider making and barrel-loads of England’s oldest whiskey on our guided tours, to our jam making kitchen and collection of friendly farmyard animals.
“We have invested a huge amount in to making Healeys a popular and successful business and visitor attraction and can’t wait to welcome even more people this year.”
Highlights of one of Healeys busiest years to date, include the launch of a £3.5million state of the art production facility as well as deals with national retailers and a host of industry awards.
For the first time in its history, Healeys was also able to move to 24 hour production as more than 1,500 tonnes of apples were pressed and transformed in to bottles of cider and handcrafted juices in response to customer demand.
