ONE
We've always been a 100% donation based producer.

TWO
We put our donors (the suppliers) first. They're our most important customers SO THEY GET OFFERED THEIR SHARE BACK BEFORE ANYONE ELSE GETS A TASTE.

THREE
We're in our third season of producing cider for FC United.

FOUR
We're working with Manchester Fire Service'S - Prince's Trust Team
To provide workshops and training in running a social enterprise.

FIVE
We've planted loads of apple trees locally,
Including mini orchards in Manchester Art Gallery, Wythenshawe
and of course Moss Side.

SIX
We've committed to delivering our cider by cargo bike,
Thanks to funding from City South and TfGM.

SEVEN
We were among the founding members of The Moss Side Market
who are now running things INDEPENDENTLY.

EIGHT
We've kept our wholesale list independent and local.
"We MAKE local cider, for local people"
(to be SAID in the thickest west country accent)

NINE
We've consistently been a voice and advocate of changing the perceptions of Moss Side. It's truly a wonderful place to live, raise a family and start a business
(AND 'VICE MUNCHIES' SEEMS TO AGREE CLICK HERE)

TEN
Since 2010 we've rescued, picked and foraged enough apples to make over 23,000 pints of cider.

23,000 pints, people!!!

That alone is a miracle as those fruits would have OTHERWISE rotted
and not quenched the thirst of Mancunians across the region.
