Orchard Box The UK's 1st Craft Cider Subscription Box.

Hi I'm Louis, welcome to the Crowdfunder support page of Orchard Box!

As a real cider lover I've found sometimes its difficult to find unique and interesting real ciders. Most shops, pubs, and bars only have mass produced ciders, and "ciders" made from concentrates which are packed with artificial flavourings. Thats why we are crowdfunding to launch Orchard Box - The UK's 1st Craft Cider Subscription Box! So now, real cider lovers around the UK can discover rare, interesting, and hard to find craft ciders from around the world; easily.

The goal of this campaign is to reach like-minded people for collaboration, and to raise money in exchange for early access and rewards. Of course, we also want to spread the word! The more people we can get using Orchard Box then the more functional, and successful, it will be. This campaign will give you the news on our efforts, and progress. Beyond that, we encourage you to ask questions,to donate, and to get involved. We're launching for the benefit of cider lovers and small craft producers; we really believe this will offer an easier way to enjoy our passion for cider!

Do you want to discover unique interesting craft ciders from around the world?

Do you want to support small producers & farmers?

Do you want ciders made from actual fruit juice rather than concentrates and artificial flavourings?

If you answered "Yes" to any of these questions then keep reading......

 

The Twenty-First Century Tasting Method Has Arrived!

Welcome to the newest way to discover the worlds best craft ciders, all at the click of a button! Subscription boxes are currenty being used with great success for craft beer, there are even some for doggy products & Japanese sweets! So, why not for great craft ciders?

The craft cider revolution is growing by the day. We want to give independent producers a chance to shine, and for their products to get into the hands of the people that will truly appreciate them.

We aim to not only provide the Orchard Box, but also a marketplace for users to be able to re-order the wonderful ciders they've discovered through the box; a place to provide small artisan producers with a direct route to market.

 

About Us.

When I was 8 years old we had a small orchard which my Dad would make cider from the apples. One day my cousin Jon, and I, were playing in the barn. We used the tap on the cider barrel to climb up; snapping it off and losing all my Dads cider!! So it was at an early age that I discovered peoples' "passion" for real cider!

Our mission is to get the best real craft ciders, from around the world, into the hands of the people that love them, and to give smaller producers exposure.

How You Can Help.

To bring Orchard Box to life, we need your support!

Your support will help us get things started, it will assist with the cost of the website, design, and sourcing the ciders. More importantly; you get to be one of the first users of Orchard Box, and, with your input help us make it better month on month. We are committed to continuously improving and finding the best for our members.

If we can achieve our funding we can:

  • Develop the website and the world's biggest marketplace of craft ciders - so users can reorder the ciders they loved and producers can have an easy route to market
  • Source all the best ciders for your first Orchard Box
  • Market the box to let more people know, the more members the better we can be!

We need your pledges but if you support what we are trying to do we also need you to help spread the word!

So please share this on Facebook, Twitter and anywhere else!
