We are Lost Orchards and we are shaking up the cider industry by making award winning cider by replanting Scotland's Lost Orchards.
Since the 12th century, orchards scattered with juicy apples, were a popular sight in Scotland. Globalisation and lower transport costs lead to cheaper imports from overseas and the orchards were lost. We’re looking to reverse this process, one sip at a time and restore a traditional part of our much-loved heritage and countryside.
Our mission is to bring Scotland’s orchards back, one sip of cider at a time.
So how do we plant the trees?
That is a very good question! We started with one grower, Andrew in 2012 and since then we’ve increased our number of growers to 4. We’ve already planted a few thousand trees and we aim to expand our group and the numbers of orchards we plant.
