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 Cider Taphouse benefits 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.
