We grew up with apples. They’ve nourished us, inspired us, and provided for us since 1842. That was when our founder – S.R. – began growing and packaging apples in New York, using techniques he learned from his grandfather, Zebulon Mott. S.R. pioneered advanced pasteurization and filtration techniques at his mill in Bouckville, New York, and the popularity of his products began to grow. After the death of one of his sons, S.R. retired from the apple business, selling the company to his remaining sons, John and Frederick, for $1. After John’s death, Frederick sold the company, renamed Genesee Fruit Company, to the W.B. Duffy Cider Company for substantially more. In 1914, the two companies consolidated into the Duffy-Mott Company, Inc. And the commitment to apple excellence continued to expand over the next 70 years.
