Welcome to \The Julian Cider Mill!

Welcome to the official website of The Julian Cider Mill. We are a small cider pressing outfit located in scenic Julian, California. We are the store you've come to know and love for our fresh local cider, home made fudge, classic preserves, and nostalgic candies for the past 45+ years! 

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 Slaughter's 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 Julian Cider Mill has been family owned and operated for over 45+ years, with the Slaughter's original ideals of low prices, family values, cleanliness, and excellent products still in practice today. Willis & Lilly May and their son and daughter-in-law Fred and Susan Slaughter created a generational legacy. The Julian Cider Mill is managed by Willis's granddaughter, Sandra Slaughter - 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 Julian Cider Mill a destination, you'll be glad you did.
