You can purchase jams, apple cider donuts, fresh cider, and 8 or so, pie choices. There is also a small Gift Shop with neat items to buy. This is a MUST visit and a true New England... More

Beardsleys has the best frozen pies that you can take home and bake yourself including sugar free apple pie. It's a great place to take the kids to pick apples because there's not too much walking and they can reach the branches all by themselves. Overall, a great place to visit for the family or to just run in to... More

Apple cider made in front of your eyes, from apples picked from their orchards. Cider is sold pasteurized or unpasteurized. Apple cider doughnuts made right there. Delicious baked goods and gifts are available. Apple picking is available for the whole family !

Beardsley Cider Mill - the name says it all! Fresh pressed apple cider that you can watch being made right there. The little country store offers a little of this and a little of that, like cookbooks, country knickknacks, and the best apple pie in CT! I've bought pies there for years and never, ever once got a single seed... More
