Here at the Mill we have a 30 year tradition of catering to tour groups. Although we see up to 30 coaches a day during the peak season, we treat each group with personal attention. The moment you enter the grounds, a guide hops right on your coach (usually the owner or a manager). We do a brief history and highlights of the Mill en route to the Press room, where we all enjoy a taste of Fresh Apple Cider during an entertaining and informative talk on how our cider is made. We then turn the group loose in the store, where they can browse, shop, or sample some of our many goodies. Tour Groups especially like the Mill because of the flat, easy access throughout the parking lot and stores, our handicapped accessibility, and our great bathrooms. We have lots of small, trinket style gifts, such as refrigerator magnets, for easy stowing on the coaches.
Top 5 Reasons the Mill is a "must stop":
1) Parking and store are flat for easy access.
2) Tours are FREE.
3) Reservations highly recommended, but we don't ever turn anybody away.
4) Several (newly renovated!) bathrooms located in our two buildings.
5) Free samples.
Group leader benefits: Each group leader and driver are offered a free coffee and donut, as well as a 20% discount on all your purchases. Wearing your complimentary Cold Hollow apple lanyard will let the salespeople know that you are a group leader.
