We are still in Bishops Frome, the village where Henney's Cider has been based since day one, but we are now living at Tree Farm, a smallholding on the outskirts of the village.
At the moment there is precious little farming going on at Tree Farm - a bit of haymaking, a few tenant sheep over the winter, one bee hive and three pet goats - but the plan is to establish a traditional standard cider apple orchard over about four acres.
We committed to buy the farm ages ago - have had a lot of work done on the house before moving in - so Mike was able to start planning the orchard and ordering trees back in 2011. He chose 10 different varieties of standard apple trees, which have been growing in the nursery at John Worle Ltd for the past 18 months.
Now in their dormant winter state, it is safe for them to be uprooted and moved, so in just a few weeks time a vast number of trees will be arriving ready for planting.
It's going to be an exciting time - to finally see Tree Farm start to live up to its name - and I'll make sure to capture the journey step by step on this blog.
