Melick’s Town Farm is proud to continue their tradition of apple growing and production of fine apple products with the natural extension of hard cider. We are happy to have such a quality hard cider brand that lives up to our high standards. Since 1728 we have been farming the lands of New Jersey, although we have taken a few generations off of hard cider production we are happy to be continuing the tradition of fermenting apple juice to produce a quality product that our Forefathers consumed on a daily basis.

1728 Traditional
