About Us

How it all started:

In 2013, Crazy Dave's wife told him to 'get a hobby'. He had been making wine and beer since the age of 13 so thought he'd have a go at cider making using fruit from his own trees in Littlewick Green, Berkshire.

The next steps:

From Crazy Dave's crop of 2013, he made 80 litres and shared it with family and friends which proved to be successful.


Crazy Dave's  business plan was simple - 'to sell his cider and have his customers returning to buy a second bottle, at some point in the future'.

From then to now:

Formerly an Operations Director of a large, international civil engineering company, he gave up his job in 2016 to follow his 'passion for apples'.


Crazy Dave can now be found making his cider in Holyport, Berkshire (unless he's out collecting apples, on his market stall/delivering to customers etc etc!).
