Then follow the luscious aroma emanating from the bakery which features wonderful “from scratch” deep dish fruit pies as well as a compliment of turnovers, strudels and other goodies. Watch our famous donuts being made on the spot and take home a dozen to savor the pleasant memory of your day. While apple and pumpkin picking, enjoy a walk on the farm.

Kelly’s was started in the early 1950’s by Myron Kelly. It was a small roadside stand that offered apples, hot fried cakes and fresh sweet cider.
In 1981, Helen and John Cocuzza were searching for a dairy farm to retire to from the city. On a whim, they went to see an apple farm in the small, quaint town of Hilton, NY. Upon visiting, their plans changed instantly. Within the first three years, they expanded the farm, structure and business by building a fireplace, bakery, hayrides and pumpkins with the help of their son, Jamie.
Jamie Cocuzza took over the farm in 1992. He learned to bee-keep, adding a bee-observatory and mechanical apple-peeler. Kelly’s began educational tours in the 90’s, offering a glance at growing apples, the importance of bees to agriculture and how cider is produced. In 2000, cider regulations changed and farms was required to “treat” their cider. Up until then, Kelly’s never pasteurized- we believe heating the cider removes texture and taste. This development put many small cideries in the area out of business- even used milk pasteurizers are costly. As we scrambled for a solution, we discovered a UV treatment option that removes bad pathogens without heating the juice- preserving that viscous cider quality we all know and love. We invested in a ‘Cidersure’ and problem solved- we UV treat to this day.
Today, the farm is still family run. You will find the Cocuzza’s (Jamie, his son Danny and daughter Meryl) there on a daily basis. Our family is committed to sustainability and integrity; providing quality and consistency in everything we produce. Danny is a self-taught jack of all trades. He welds, builds and forges most of what we use on the farm. Most recently, he is raising chickens that you may find running wild while apple picking.
