Milhench Traditions

Hanna’s Rum Cake

Twenty years ago, Hanna Milhench started making traditional German Rum Cakes (“Rum Kuchen”) for Arthur Milhench to hand deliver to his special customers at Christmas. Today, Hanna bakes over 350 Rum Cakes each holiday season for us to pass out to our valued clients. All German Rum Cakes are hand made by Hanna Milhench using her centuries old German family recipe. We’d love to share the recipe, but it’s a secret! Guten appétit!

Oktoberfest at Milhench Supply

Milhench Supply Company celebrated its 75th Anniversary in 2007 and its 80th Anniversary in 2012 with an Oktoberfest celebration on the lawn of our New Bedford location. On beautiful September days, and underneath a beautiful tent we host suppliers, customers and neighbors alike to enjoy the German tradition. Inside, suppliers present their wares, and outside the grills are fired up serving bratwurst and potato pancakes. We also have live music, traditional costumes, apple strudel, a pitch and putt contest with prizes, and a raffle. Over 400 people have attended this traditional event – we hope to see you at the 85th!
