Uncle John’s Cider Mill
Our founders John and Carolyn Beck purhcased the "family farm" from John's parents in the early 1970's. Originally run as a wholesale fruit and vegetable farm, the young Becks found it hard to make ends meet in the depressed wholesale market. They had to find an innovative way to keep the farm in operation.
Then it came to them. They needed to make apple cider and donuts. John's parents were skeptical of the new business plan. Understanding the elder Beck's concerns, the young entrepreneurs pressed on with the plan and through hard work and faith in their efforts the business began to take off. Help came from many extended family members and friends.
After their initial success, they began adding more and more goodies to offer their customers. Cider and donuts were followed by pies, breads, preserves, honeys and syrups. Weekend entertainers were brought in (late 1970's) for fall "festival-type" events. Barns were transformed into the Gift Shop, the Snack Barn and even a winery. To this day we try to add something new every year to always be original for our valued customers.
Remaining Family Friendly is Uncle John's number one goal. We want to be the place that you bring your children, grandchildren, even great grandchildren year after year. your business is greatly appreciated and we hope that you enjoy your visit to your farm. Bring your family soon - start your own tradition!
