About Us

Hugh was born and raised in Riwaka in the Top of the South Island of New Zealand. After many years growing and packing Apples and Kiwifruit for both the export and local markets he decided to do something a little bit different. 

After downsizing the farm, he decided to try his hand at making cider, using apples from both his farm and other local growers. Turns out he's quite good at it! Now that he's got those all important formulas right, he's decided that its time you tried some!


Hugh works along side his partner Steff, his daughter Andrea and her husband Cameron. Together they make up the Team at Left Branch Cider.
