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. After wholesaling, we used the Fruit House as a packing facility and a retail outlet. Later it became the farm workshop and remained that for the last 20+ years.
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.
In addition to Hard Cider, the tasting room features a combination of fruit, and traditional grape wines, along with carbonated, dessert and other specialty wines.
