Somerset Voices: Richard Sheppy (b.1927)

Richard Sheppy was born at Three Bridges Farm at Bradford-on-Tone. His father was engaged in mixed farming and then cattle farming, until he was advised that his farm was ideal for growing quality cider apples. He won prizes for his cider in various shows, and by the 1920s he decided to concentrate on developing the cider business, which was a successful firm by the time Richard inherited it. The difficulties encountered in producing cider has necessitated the development of a museum at the farm as an extension of the business.
