The county of Herefordshire is historically known as “the land of milk and honey,” with the cathedral city of Hereford being a centre of trade for wider agricultural produce such as cider, beer leather goods and cattle including the famous Hereford breed. The city lies on the River Wye approximately 16 miles east of the border with Wales and 24 miles of south west of Worcester. As a result of the wider county being a centre for cider production with its many many acres of orchards, a number breweries and associated organisations have their base here, many at the Rotherwas industrial estate.

There is also a museum dedicated to cider production in the town with roles including education and outreach as well as more general work such as reception.
