For a weekend every year farmers in Northern Ireland open their farms for visitors to come and see what they produce and how. This is a wonderful opportunity for city folk and school children to witness where milk comes from, how sheep are shorn, where meat is produced and how apple cider is produced and more. I took time to visit two of County Armagh's top cider makers, Carson's cider and Long Meadow. We had a tour around the farm in tractor and trailer, a talk about how cider is produced, a treasure hunt in the orchard, samples of cider & juices and many varied activities for the children. County Armagh has approximately 10 top craft cider makers producing a produce with a wide variety of textures recognised throughout Ireland, UK & Europe. It is recommended that to enjoy a good meal you should also compliment it with a suitable cider blend - Armagh's answer to a good wine!
