Join the Saratoga County Chamber in celebrating Lakeside Farms 75th Anniversary!!
In 1948 Robert Pearce bought a Ballston Lake farm for its old barn and the cider press that was in it. Built in the late 1880's, the 120 ton screw driven press was put to use and Bob, his wife Agnes and their son Dick began making and selling filtered, preserved cider.
Their success with the cider led them to open a small retail store in 1958. That store, down in back of where the current store now stands, proved successful as well and in 1961 the Pearces renovated an old carriage barn on the property, making it the Lakeside Cider Mill & Farm store.They sold fresh vegetables and apple cider and two years later added pies salads and sandwiches to their wares.
The store's continued success led to the construction of an apple barn in 1971 in order to better serve customers who came to buy apples and cider during the busy fall rushes.
Help us wish another successful 75+ Years to come for Lakeside Farms!
