Cider makers come full circle

Following a year of painstaking renovations, a trio of partners recently pushed out their first two batches of cider.

John Behrens bought his family’s farm to ensure it would stay in the family for a fifth generation, following his grandmother’s death in 2013. Approximately 150 years ago, Behrens’ great-great-grandfather Claus Behrens came to West Michigan and bought 200 acres near Hudsonville. From 1867 to 2012, pieces of the 200 acres were sold off or given away, but the original farmhouse and barns were kept together on a five-acre plot.
