The 

OLDFIELDS TIMELINE

1960

The Thompsons move to Oldfields.

  "One thing dad brought with us was some cider making equipment he’d bought off an old boy in Cowsden." - Geoff Thompson

1979

"Hop picking always saw a lot of cider being drunk, especially at the ‘end-of-picking’ parties."

1995

2013

Hobsons and Oldfields put their heads together and decide to start producing a quality local cider and so Oldfields Cider was born!

That autumn they begin the annual tradition of making cider on the farm.

The Thompsons start growing hops at Little Lambswick farm just down the road from Oldfields.

1993

Hobson’s Brewery is founded by Nick Davis and his father Jim.

Little Lambswick Farm start supplying hops to Hobsons Brewery.

2001

The Thompsons begin planting cider apple orchards.

Initially 40 acres were planted but this was subsequently expanded to 60 acres in 2016.

2017

By 2017 Oldfields Cider has become fully in-house with its own bottling and kegging plant.

Oldfields Cider is included in The Independent’s Top 10 Ciders and is chosen as the Best Drinks Producer in Worcestershire by Visit Worcestershire. 

 

What a bloody good year that was.
