years prior to being bitten with the fruit passion , Stan Pankiewicz
worked in a nearby apple orchard. He started there in 1969 and worked
for several years for an elderly man named Harvey. It was a way for
Stan to make a supplemental income for his growing family. It turned
out to be a learning experience into the wonderful world of fruit growing.
Stan started planting his own trees in 1972 and still adds to them each
year. To build his customer base, Stan contracted out to a local mill
the pressing of his apples into cider. He did then as he does now supervise
the blending of " just the right" apple varieties to give
his cider "just the right" taste. In 1984 he built the cider
mill that stands today.
1988 after getting the cider mill rolling, Stan started growing and
selling produce and pumpkins. The cider mill keeps growing too, with
the addition of a snack bar and " Spankie Snax ", his own
brand of delicious snacks. With years of experience the business will
continue to grow. We are and always will be a "family owned and
operated" cider mill. We take pride in bringing you the best we
have, after all, our name is on the label.
