I have been coming to the Cider Mill since I was a kid. I love they still sell cider and donuts there. You can see the process and walk around on a nice crisp fall day. Not to be missed!

Part of my fall traditions, I love coming here. Get a donut and a cider slushie, feed the ducks and maybe buy some apple butter. If you go when it's warm watch out for the bees though. CASH ONLY

An experience everyone can share. Kids love the caramel apples and cider, adults the doughnuts and apple pies. Always a good time.
