Yarde's unique terroir - the magic of Stoke Gabriel, Devon Gentle cooling breezes drift off the tidal River Dart making the early mornings look magical. Often cooling mists roll up the valley, tinged with a slight saltiness on the fresh sea air, onto the surrounding lush green hills and into the orchards. Later the sun usually burns off the cooler air providing perfect growing conditions for the surrounding orchards.
The soil is a deep rich colour which the apple trees absorb through their roots, imparting their minerals and nutrients into the apples which make our cider taste so distinct. All our apples come from within a 3 mile radius of Stoke Gabriel.
