We love cider so we began producing our own 100% apple ciders for friends and family five years ago. The positive reaction and the demand for our cider gave us the idea for the business.
Mark is the creator of the Big Bear Cider Mill. He is also the original Big Bear and is the inspiration behind the brand.
Mark is driving force behind our enterprise and has a passion for cider. Mark started by planting his first tree in 2008 and promptly filled the plot of land across from his house into a thriving orchard of 500 cider apple trees, that was just the start of it all!
Kathryn runs the day to day working of The Big Bear Cider Mill. Kathryn worked for 13 years in one or Europe’s largest law firms, meaning she is familiar with adhering to high quality management standards, compliance being her speciality.
She is now taking on The Big Bear and keeping us all under control! Whilst doing this Kathryn has made it her mission to keep the authentic craft cider quality of our product at the same time as keeping up with global demand.
Emily manages our cider production with enthusiasm, knowledge and craft.
She has always been a keen cider drinker and has eagerly transferred her passion for drinking it into a passion for making it. Emily is always keen to expand her knowledge and is always pushing to improve the cider she produces.

Anna is always using her unique style and design skills to create and develop our Big Bear Brand. Her creativity knows no bounds constantly adapting our logo to fit our different products.
Will runs the outside day to day maintenance of The Big Bear. He is often seen with his Belgian Malinois “Lira” closely on his heels whilst he checks everything is as it should be with the orchards or driving around in his large orange tractor (you can’t miss it!). He checks the trees regularly for any problems and carries out any pruning or treatment that may be needed. Will is also the chief apple presser and oversees the whole process of harvesting & pressing the apples.
