sustainability“Straw & Oak” – the story of traditional cider pressing in Devon

August 17, 2020by discovercider0

Straw & Oak is a short documentary film about the tradition of apple growing and cider pressing in one Devon valley. On a cold, wet day at the end of November 2019, film maker Bill Bradshaw, was asked to travel to a small farm in Devon to capture a father and his two sons making cider the traditional way: pressing with straw on an old, oak wooden press.  The result is a glorious snapshot of a byegone age.
