Farnsworth Farms Cider Mill
In 1958, John O Farnsworth traded his dairy farm on Creek Road for 50 acres in Sandy, Utah. Over the years, he raised his family in the apple and apple cider business. John passed away in 2002, but the family farm is still run by his children. Farnsworth Farms strives to provide delicious, fresh fruit and vegetables for our friends, family and the community. We also make the best apple cider in the world. We’ve been told it’s just like drinking an apple.
What makes Farnsworth Farms Apple Cider taste so good? Our sorting process. Because we sell a raw (un-pasteurized) product, we have to be extremely picky about the apples that go into our cider. We hand sort through every apple to throw out the bad, rotten or moldy and cut out the bad parts. Our rule is: If you wouldn’t eat it, don’t put it in our cider. Most commercial juice makers receive their apples by the truckload with no hand sorting allowing bad, rotten or moldy apples to go in. The product is pasteurized, which kills any bacteria that could be in it, but the rotten apple can still be tasted. We are very proud of our delicious Apple Cider. You can find our cider in most Harmon’s stores in the dairy department, usually next to the juices.
In the fall, we grow tomatoes, eggplant, watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew melon, jalapeno peppers and Anaheim peppers. We allow the public to come and Pick-Your-Own fruit and vegetables. It’s a wonderful opportunity for children to see where food really comes from – not just from the grocery store. It’s also a fun family activity.
