Willy's Apple Cider Vinegar with the Mother can be added to our bones to make the most nutritious broth
There'a whole lot of heritage behind Willy's Bioganic Cider Apple Vinegar. It's made from 48 varieties of bittersweet apples grown in orchards that are over 300 years old. Mother nature rules the roost here, with the trees, ably assisted by an army of buzzing pollinators, producing wholly natural fruit, without artificial pesticides or fertilizers.
Once the apples have grown and been picked (with wonky, super-ripe specimens contributing abundantly to the flavour), nature carries on her work in the production of the vinegar. As with all vinegars, the magic happens through fermentation. In Willy's case, this fermentation is kick-started by 'The Mother' – a colony of beneficial bacteria that's peculiar to Laddin Farm in Herefordshire, where the apples grow.
Apple cider vinegar has, for very many years, been recommended as a gut-health booster. The addition of a drop of honey adds sweetness if you fancy taking yours as a shot each day. We love its flavour in our homemade stocks. So why not join us? Grab some of our organic marrow bones or an organic chicken carcass or two and bubble them up into delicious, nutritious broths to sip as a comforting hot drink or use in your favourite recipes.
Willy's Apple Cider Vinegar is a labour of love. First, organic apples are hand-picked then pressed and allowed to naturally ferment, making a beautifully natural unfiltered cider. This cider, with the help of fresh Herefordshire air, is left to ferment and transform into vinegar. During the transformation, the Mother's friendly bacteria is drawn in, making the vinegar cloudy and ‘cobwebby’. And that’s about it. Nothing added, nothing removed – 100% natural.
People have been cooking with apple cider vinegar for years and swearing by its benefits. As many of us all aspire healthier living through clean eating, Willy’s Apple Cider Vinegar with The Mother is becoming a kitchen-cupboard staple the world over.

Freezing is the most natural way of preserving food. And as here at Coombe Farm Organic we believe in slow-grown, healthy food, a form of preservation that doesn’t need artificial additives gets a big tick from us.
We use blast freezing to preserve all of our meat products. It’s done at the point of butchery, to temperatures of -26°C. This locks in all the freshness, flavour and nutritional value and means you get the longest possible shelf life at home once you’ve defrosted it.
It also guarantees it will arrive with you in tiptop condition - confidently delivering fresh meat would be much more challenging.
All of our meat is butchered in our in-house butchery by our small team. This means we have full control of what is cut and also means that we can accommodate more requests from our customers.
You will find any product ingredients on the relevant product pages.
