Our family’s Apple Mill and Country Store has been a part of the local community since it first opened its doors in 1918 by Paul “Great Grandpa” Schutt. Located in beautiful Western New York a few minutes outside of Rochester, Our family run farm is in the heart of apple country.
Over the course of our farm’s history, Charles and Theresa Schutt grew the business from a small cider room to a full country store which was open year round. At this time, they began carrying local goods such as honey, cheeses, jam and maple syrup.
Later, in the 1990s, my dad, Marty brought Schutt’s Apple Mill into another phase of its history by doubling the size of the country store. Our expansion allowed for the selling of gift items and making of our famous homemade fried cakes on the premises.
Since my dad’s retirement, we have ventured into the hard cider industry with our own product line, named in honor of Paul Schutt, called Great Grandpa’s Grog. Also, our family has begun incorporating more family friendly activities and special events for community enjoyment here at our farm.
And the future looks bright for our family, as a new renovation project is on the horizon for 2018. Our new look will include an updated cider room with viewing glass to show the community the process of cider making. Also, in the future we will be offering pick your own apples from our orchard.
