Our partners, sponsors and supporters are passionate about Somerset and are eager to promote the county, its communities and its produce through innovative, fun and exciting events and campaigns.

Since 1904, four generations of the Thatcher family have been making cider at Myrtle Farm, in Sandford, Somerset.

Thatchers passion for quality has led to an unrivalled range of premium ciders, with its deep knowledge of apple varieties resulting in innovative ciders that are full of flavour and with a distinct character that reflects English cidermaking at its best. Its ciders include flagship brand Thatchers Gold, Thatchers Haze, Thatchers Vintage and Thatchers Katy.

Martin Thatcher feels strongly about supporting Somerset Dy 365 “After all what would Somerset be without cider? We’re a Somerset company through and through. My family has lived in the county for generations, and celebrating Somerset is what we do every day of our lives through our orchards, which are such a stunning part of our local environment, to the cider we make. For us, Somerset Day is all about coming together with friends and family, in our community, and celebrating this fantastic area we live and work in.”

Pyne’s of Somerset has become a destination for food shoppers from across three counties, some of them regularly driving 40 miles to get there.

It’s sited just off the M5 at North Petherton where Malcolm and Julie Pyne relocated from the village centre in 2011.

The business has grown hugely since but the fundamentals remain unchanged: meat is from locally-raised livestock which, says Malcolm Pyne, means customers are guaranteed unmatchable quality, whether buying prime cuts or his national award-winning sausages and burgers.

Pyne’s also offers fresh fish, a delicatessen counter, speciality regional products, Somerset ciders and a hot food takeaway.
