In the 1850’s our the Schaefer family homesteaded the ancestral farm in Conklin Michigan. The Schaefer Orchard has passed down six generations of apple growers. A hundred years after its founding, our family built a cold storage facility to keep the apples for extended time. It is in this building that we make PUX cider. In recent years Pux Cider has expanded that original small plot to a highly cultivated 300 acres of high-density plantings for traditional, artisanal hard ciders.


In 2012 the Schaefer family began planting heirloom and cider apples on the homesteaded family orchard.  At this same time, we started to create small batches of cider.  As the cider started to flow, so did our experience with and enthusiasm for these old cultivars. Currently, Pux Ciders benefit from close to 125 of our apple cultivars. These range from American dessert apples to French and English cider apples. We use these apples to create each unique batch of Pux crafted ciders. We also use other local Michigan products in our ciders, like tart cherries, pears and hops.
