Secret Garden Party – 19th – 22nd July
This is the sixth time that Draught Suffolk Cyder will have been available to festival goers and we’re delighted to be part of such a creative and fascinating occasion. The Aspall Cyder Barn will be there again, a solid oak framed marquee replica of our original cyder house from 1728 which still stands to this day. So come in and sample a bit of cyder whilst you take in the surroundings of what is always an engaging but relaxing and friendly community.
Congratulations to our twitter winners who entered our competition to win tickets this year.

Jimmy’s Farm Sausage and Beer Festival – 28th and 29th July
Why not join Jimmy at his hugely popular Sausage and Beer festival over the last weekend in July. We’ll be there and it couldn’t get any more British than having bangers and beer or even a lovely Aspall Cyder. With sausage making demonstrations, live music and plenty of entertainment for the children, take a look at the website for how to buy tickets in advance. http://jimmysfarm.com/products-page/event-tickets/
But it’s not only beer that’s great with sausages, Aspall is a fantastic addition to pork dishes, whether as an accompaniment or ingredient. Why not consider a pork recipe from the Aspall family recipe book.
