Thatchers Cider opened the gates to Myrtle Farm in Sandford to enable people to see behind the scenes.
Black Jacks, The Floor Shiners and Southern Sons provided the music as visitors basked in the September sun.
Thatchers put on face-painting, apple-pressing, competitions, sports skills and science experiments for youngsters, while adults flocked to the cider tent to taste drinks.
