Colonel Ricketts Hard Cider

Colonel Ricketts Hard Cider We started making hard cider in our basement about 30 years ago. In 2006 we bought a press and began making our own sweet cider. Now we direct every step of the cider making process, from selecting the apples through bottling. The only thing we don't do is grow the apples. We buy our apples from orchards here in Columbia and neighboring counties. We add only sugar, yeast and salicylic acid, and occasionaly fresh fruits, such as strawberries. We add no raisins, fruit concentrates, sulfur compounds or other preservatives. These ingredients allow us to produce pure, very smooth hard ciders.

FROM NORTH or SOUTH: Take Route 487 into Benton. At the north end of town, at the corner of Route 487 and Green Acres Road, look for the big white barn emblazoned with BENTON FARMERS' MARKET.
