McCutcheon's Apple Products

Fresh, local apples are
the key to their popular cider.
McCutcheon's Apple Products, located right next to Carroll Creek, produces and sells all of their products from their factory in Frederick. McCutcheon's is a family-owned business that has been making their products in Frederick since 1938. The company sells a wide range of specialty fruit products, including apple cider, jelly, and butters. 

McCutcheon's currently has over 30 full time employees, some of who are third, fourth, and fifth generation members of the McCutcheon family. Our office had the opportunity to tour McCutcheon's factory and to meet with the President, Bob McCutcheon III.
