WEDMORE, ENGLAND - OCTOBER 03: Michael Callender who works at Wilkins Cider Farm picks fallen apples from a tree in a orchard at Lands End farm in the village of Mudgley on October 3, 2017 in Somerset, England. The farm has been owned by the Wilkins family for 100 years and has been a traditional cider maker for decades. Westcountry apple growers say 'perfect' weather conditions in 2017 have made for a bumper crop for making cider, thanks to a hot summer, cold winter and damp end to growing season.
