About

Good Life Cider is an expression of Good Life Farm.  Good Life Farm is a wildly diverse small organic farm where we focus on Good Soil to create Good Fruit and Good Cider. Two of our ciders- ‘Cazenovia’ and ‘Honeoye’- are named for the main soil types on the farm.

Good Life Farm is owned by Garrett Miller and Melissa Madden, who work alongside a delightful and dedicated crew.  Good Life Cider comes from the hearts and minds of the Brothers Miller- Garrett and Jimmy form a dynamic duo to turn our fruit into your drink.

Cider Talk

Our ciders are distinctly American in style, which means we’re not afraid to borrow from the world of traditions. Good Life Cider creatively blends international influences with a taste of the Finger Lakes through our mineral-rich, acidic apples. Our cider line ranges from tannic and dry to bright, fruit-forward and sweet; in sparkling, traditional method (champagne) and barrel-aged styles.  Our range is based on traditional bittersweet apples and sharp, acidic heirloom fruits.

Farm Philosophy

Good Life Farm is our home and our work and our way to say YES.  Melissa and Garrett bought these 69 acres in 2008 when the fields were all in corn, wheat and soy.  Over the past years, we’ve created a diverse ecological farm.  We’ve planted grass, bushes and trees, built buildings, put up high tunnels, fenced the property and brought in turkeys, geese, beef cows and draft horses.  Our business is built for maximum positive impact- instead of focusing on doing “less” harm, we seek to do the most good for our community.  For us, this means growing abundance, resilience and diversity every day.   Good Life Farm is a certified organic farm; a full diet CSA+; and home to Finger Lakes Cider House, our collaborative multi-cidery Tasting Room.
