Representing some 350,000 trees being added to the landscape, the Midlands-based business will grant 25 year contracts to growers.
In recent years Aston Manor has planted a small number of cider apple and perry pear orchards to supplement the 300 acres in and around Malvern that already supply the business.
The scale of the new planting across prime locations in Herefordshire will take a couple of years to complete, though all locations are identified and agreements have been reached with growers.
