Blacksmith Forging & Tasting Experience
3 hours of forging followed by a tour & tasting of your choice.
Experience the life of a traditional blacksmith at our specialist forge in the very heart of rural Herefordshire. Oldfield Forge Academy is dedicated to teaching you time-honoured blacksmithing skills and techniques.
After working up a thirst you can down tools and enjoy lunch before making your way over to nearby Hillside Brewery or Westons Cider. So, whether you're a beer or cider lover, there's a tour that's just right for your preferred tipple.
Tour & Tasting Options and Details:
Westons Cider - Traditional producers of award winning cider and perry draught and bottled products. Discover the craft of cider-making from blossom to bottle. They will show you everything - with an expert guide leading the way. See where they harvest, weigh and wash apples. Venture into the heart of the mill where they press, ferment and mature before blending and packing. See all they do, why and how – and hear a little bit of home-spun history too.
Available – Every day
Hillside Brewery - an exciting, family owned and run Gloucestershire brewery, built upon traditional skills and values. You can see, touch, smell & experience the brewing process up close, before sitting back to taste a well-earned ale overlooking some of Gloucestershire's most stunning landscape.
Limited tour available, please enquire.
During your three hour experience at Oldfield Forge Academy we will help you to forge your very own bottle opener to complement your subsequent tour and tasting experience. Do not worry, nobody leaves us without firstly completing their opener before heading to the tasting!
For your lunch you are more than welcome to bring your own picnic from home or, if you wish to order a delicious home-cooked meal from our local pub, we can help you to arrange this. Set in our beautiful woodland we also have a shepherd's hut and a Scandinavian lodge which are available for you to use.
The forging experience lasts approximately three hours and is followed by a tour and tasting at your chosen venue. This is a fantastic day for all.
From stag and hen parties, company team building through to simple 'friends get togethers' – we really can create an event that will work for every type of group. We will help you put the whole day together – working within your budget to make your day at Oldfield Forge a special one to remember.
