Our local area is fit to burst with the most incredible artisan producers. We have some fantastic wine, cider and beer produced right on our doorstep.
Here are a few pairings using our favourite craft drinks, made less than 10 miles from Home Farm.
Yearlstone is located on a steep southerly slope on a hillside above the lower valley of the river Exe at the picturesque village of Bickleigh in mid-Devon. It is 200 feet above sea level and has natural protection from the north, east and west.
The vineyard was started in 1976 by pioneering English viticulturist Gillian Pearkes. She planted many different wine varieties collected on her worldwide travels, experimented with wine growing techniques for the English climate, and wrote a very well regarded book based on her experiences. The vineyard had an international reputation thanks to Gillian's pioneering efforts.

Ground in vivid, red soil; criss-crossed by ancient orchards and bound by its own microclimate, Sandford was created to produce cider. This lush green corner of Devon is the finest place on earth to grow cider apples.
That’s why Sandford Orchards insist that every single apple used is grown within a 30 mile radius of its press. No exceptions. No compromise.
We supply Sandford Orchards with our heritage apples grown on the Quicke's estate, so their cider is a real celebration of our terroir.

Just stumbling distance from Home Farm, Hanlons Brewery is a family-run business with a history of brewing excellent ales and a mission to produce world-class craft beers.
Dan Taylor and Jim Bungard bought the O’Hanlons brewery business in 2013 and promptly set about building a high spec new premises on Dan’s family farm, just down the road from the Quicke's estate.
