Lancashire Food Stories

Find out about the people behind the products with our producer profiles. We’ve been out and spoken to Lancashire’s rural producers to find out what drives them to make their products.

We have also spoken to chefs and business owners to find out what local produce appears on their menus and why it is an important part of their business.

      All of the apples come from the Dove Syke nursery or are collected from around the county; making this a true Lancashire cider. Apples are pressed in autumn and left to ferment slowly. This is a traditional process which can’t be rushed, but the results are more than worth the wait!
