5 cider factories worth visiting
1) Värmdö Musteri
Värmdö Musteri is run by a Swedish-Danish couple who sell their awardwinning apple juice, homegrown produce like jelly, jam, apple pies and Danish smørrebrød in their cafe and farm shop. You can also book a guided tour and see how apples are transformed into must, vinegar, cider and calvados.
2) Lidingö Musteri
People bring their own garden apples here to be pressed. Enjoy a fika with buns and bread from Lidingö Bröd & Pâtisserie and coffee from a local roastery while you are waiting. Lidingö is a lovely destination for a day trip to nature and the archipelago just around the corner.
3) Edsvikens Musteri
Edsvikens Musteri started out in 2013 when two women realised there had to be a way of processing the apples from people’s gardens. Today they have a small-scale and craft-like production plant where they press garden apples into a delicious apple must.
Äppelfabriken has one of the country’s oldest apple farms dating back to the 17th century. Take a stroll in the apple orchard, enjoy homemade cider and a fika baked with organic ingredients. Svartsjö is located on Färingsö, an island in Lake Mälaren, which you can reach by car.
Rosenhill is a farm in Ekerö using organic methods to grow apples, among other things. The laidback, hippie atmosphere makes this a great place to chill and enjoy the Swedish countryside. During the growing season you can pick herbs and vegetables to take home, make your own apple cider, enjoy homemade food or buy arts and crafts.
