Beak and Skiff is a family owned orchard for five generations, dating back to 1911 when George Skiff, an onion farmer on the North Side of Syracuse, and Andrew Beak, a dairy farmer, met at the farmers market and decided to join forces and enter the emerging apple business. After finding a hillside area along Route 20 that provided the perfect conditions for growing apples, they started planting that very year.

In the 1920s, Beak and Skiff began selling apples to groceries stores via wholesale, and by the late 1970s, began making apples cider, the same year they opened Apple Hill Country Store. In the last 20 years, they have branched out again by creating the 1911 Established line of Hard Ciders, and created 1911 Spirits, the first Onondaga County brand to hold a distillery license and the first to produce gin.
