Visitor numbers up at Cyder Farm


An award winning Cornish cider farm has become one of the county’s most popular tourist destinations with over 400,000 people visiting the attraction last year.

Guided tours, tractor rides, free cider tastings and a menagerie of animals have all helped to entice visitors to the family-run business near Truro over the past 12 months.

And thanks to major investments including the opening of a new visitor centre along with a new production facility, numbers are expected to continue to rise further throughout 2016.

Joe Healey, commercial director at Healeys Cornish Cyder Farm, said: “We are really pleased to have welcomed so many people to the farm this year, showing them everything from the art of cider making and barrel-loads of England’s oldest whiskey on our guided tours, to our jam making kitchen and collection of friendly farmyard animals.

“We have invested a huge amount in to making Healeys a popular and successful business and visitor attraction and can’t wait to welcome even more people this year.”
