Huge gift shop, small display of cider making. We were anticipating more of the process to be observed. Sample was very good. Excellent doughnuts.

We had heard so much hype from our B&B host and even the Ben and Jerry's tour guide but the atmosphere was really dull and the cider donuts didn't taste anything special.

The Cider Mill, being springtime, included a self guided tour complete with a video and tastings of that delicious cider poured from a huge tapped barrel. Delish. The store was huge and contained products from Vermont... Apple related, honey related, maple sugar related, etc. Quite...More

This place is a can’t miss. As someone who grew up in central Vermont I can say without a doubt that they make the beat cider donuts in the area. It is a cant miss whenever I am back in the area.

Watch how Apple cider is made at no cost. Fall is best time to visit. Stopped by again in April. Still worth the stop! Great for all ages.

This touristy Vermont shoppe has every souvenir related to Vermont that one could imagine. When you go get a cider donut and watch the apple press making cider. It is a fascinating and delightful process to observe.

Went here with coupon for free cider donuts. The donuts were amazing. Went back the next day and bought more. STAFF is only drawback - not friendly at all. Lots of samples and fun Vermont themed stuff and syrup and cheese to buy.

The location may look like a country store but it also offers a great deal of food plus there's a great area to view an actual cider press at work. While you watch the process, you can sample fresh cider and it's not to be...More
