Uncle John’s Cider

In 1918 our family built the Fruit House as a place to store and package fresh fruit for the wholesale market. We specialized in apples, but also grew peaches, cherries, strawberries, and raspberries. Mike Beck (Uncle John’s Son), has been making fresh cider for as long as he can remember. He has always believed that the next step in making fresh juice was to turn it into hard cider! In 2003, with the help of a Federal Value Added Agricultural grant, he and his wife Dede, converted the barn again, and is now the home of Uncle John’s Fruit House Winery & Uncle John’s Hard Cider.
