About


Authentic & Locally Made Cider


We are the first and sole producers of locally grown, locally made cider in the Central West, NSW Australia. We make a range of ciders from fresh juice of cider and dessert apples; drawing on traditional methods of authentic cider production. The results are for everyone to enjoy: and a number of award winning ciders and perrys.

The inspiration for Small Acres Cyder came from our original founders not being able to find a choice of premium ciders in Australia. Growing up in the UK they  were used to drinking traditional cider made from cider apples. Frustrated with not having a similar choice in Australia they set about making their own; planting the orchard with a wide selection of French and English cider apple varieties.

Since then Small Acres Cyder has achieved great success with the simple formula of great quality ciders made with passion from locally grown apples and pears.

Leading the Australian craft cider market we have won more than 130 industry awards including Champion Cider at the Royal Beer and Cider Show 2021, Best Cider In Show at the Red Hill Cider Awards in 2021, we were Highly Commended at Cider Australia's 2021 Best Cellar Door awards (NSW's best result for a cider cellar door!) and won Cider Australia's Most Successful Small Producer in 2017, 2018 and 2019.

Wholesale enquiries

Wholesale customers can find our core range of ciders on the www.winedepot.com platform for easily ordering and delivery in Sydney and Melbourne.

The natural sugar in our ciders

We never sweeten our ciders with sugar but we make our cider from apple and pear juice which of course contain naturally occurring sugar. It's where the alcohol comes from and helps make cider tasty. The level of residual sugars varies greatly from very low in our drier ciders and perries to quite a lot higher in our Golden Knot ciders which are made from unfermented juice. You can view an overview of the residual sugar in our ciders on our nutritional information page.

Who are we?

We are a family run business owned by Nick and Jannene Geoghegan; often assisted by our teenage kids when they can be moved from the couch.
