In 1997 Jim and Pete purchased a beautiful old 18th century barn and outbuildings just off the main car park in Wells-next-the-Sea to be used as a ciderworks production facility and a shop from which to sell the cider. A licence was obtained allowing Jim and Pete to supply almost their entire production direct to customers directly from the shop.
For 18 years, Jim and Pete grew Whin Hill Norfolk Cider from a seed of an idea into a thriving, popular, local business with a loyal customer base who know exactly what to expect from the cider, perry, apple juice and other beverages produced at their ciderworks.
Jim and Pete both retired in April 2012 and passed the reins over to Mark and Lisa Jarvis who intend to run the business with the same emphasis on quality and service our customers have always experienced. With time, Mark and Lisa aim to bring innovation and expansion to secure the future of Whin Hill Norfolk Ciderworks for future generations.
