Join us in welcoming Indian Ladder Farms to the DDC family!

DeCrescente is now the exclusive distributor for ILF in our 11-county footprint!

The partnership to distribute ILF was years in the making. The relationship started to bloom in 2015, when representatives from the distribution company visited the farm to learn the intricacies of hop growing. Hops are hard to grow in the Northeast’s climate, and it was a fairly new concept back then when ILFCB was first starting out.

Known for forging craft ciders and beers with its own farm-grown apples and hops, Indian Ladder Farms is one of the Capital Region’s most popular family-friendly destinations. And now in its sixth year, ILFCB is one of the most rapidly growing craft beverage producers, who had been self-distributing until now.

The new distribution agreement with DeCrescente will result in Indian Ladder Farms products being available in convenience stores, beverage centers, large grocery stores, and more in the 11 counties DDC serves.

“As anyone who has visited Indian Ladder Farms could tell you, a lot of thought and care goes into every decision they make, and we are thrilled that they chose us to distribute their products,” said DDC Vice President Carmine DeCrescente III. “As a fourth-generation family business with deep roots in our community, we are especially excited to add a local, family-friendly business like Indian Ladder Farms to our wide variety of beverage products.”

“ILFCB couldn’t be more excited to enter into this next phase of development, and do it with DeCrescente,” said Dieter Gehring, Co-Owner of ILFCB. “With this new agreement, we’ll be able to share the tastes of our homegrown hops and apples with more beer and cider enthusiasts. And hopefully, those new fans will come visit the Farm and Brewery to see us in action.”
