About Us

Quality - it runs in the family.

The Julian Cider Mill was founded in 1975 by Willis Harold "Turk" Slaughter and his son, Fred Slaughter. The Slaughters had a passion for local fare, including apple cider and honey. The two started a business featuring handmade goods and cider, pressed from only Julian apples, appealing to both local residents and visitors from afar. 

 

The Cider Mill has been family owned and operated for over 30 years, with the Slaughter's original ideals of low prices, family values, cleanliness, and excellent products still in practice today. The Mill is managed by Willis's granddaughter, Sandra Moretti, and run by a friendly and knowledgable staff who are always ready to serve you.

 

Whether you're here to visit for a few days or just passing through, be sure to make The Cider Mill a destination, you'll be glad you did.
