Lattin's Country Cider Mill & Farm

Phone: (360) 491-7328
A small, family owned farm and country market. A producer of wonderful, award winning ciders, freezer jams, frozen homemade pies, and syrups. Carolyn Lattin and her daughters, Debbie and Sherrie, has been perfecting all natural products since 1976. The Lattins' products are all home-made and remind us of a simpler time when our moms and grandmothers had time to freeze and bake. They also have strawberry, raspberry, and blackberry ciders, as well as fresh fruits and pies. The farm is also open for wandering around and feeding the animals, and children are welcome. Lattin's fresh cider won the 1998 National Cider Championships, chosen from 28 entries from 14 states. Their cider is pressed weekly, and delivered to accounts throughout the northwest. None of the cider is pasteurized; no preservatives or sugars are added.
Lattin's products available online at Columbia Steppe

"Nestled along the shores of the Puget Sound and directly adjacent to the San Juan islands, the Merritt orchards take advantage of some unique growing conditions. No one knows for sure if it's the marine air of the Puget Sound or the soil conditions or the water or a combination of all three that create such a perfect growing environment for our apples. Our Gala and Jonagold are the reddest, juiciest and most flavorful that we have ever tasted. You really must try some".
