Tour the Mill
Coming to Visit?
We are right up the road (3 miles north) from Ben & Jerry's on the right, while we do not do formal tours the path thru the Cider Mill is all free. Our tours are self-guided, free of charge and open to the public with no reservations required. In the event we are not pressing cider, there is an educational video in our viewing room that shows our cider making process. When you arrive simply follow the tumbling apples on the floor out to our viewing room.
We press cider year round, two to four days a week in the summer, and seven days a week beginning in early September. On occasion, we will be making Cider Jelly, firing up our evaporator in the jelly room. We have a live Bee Observation Hive in our honey section, which is quite mesmerizing to watch. Our natural foods Bakery continually cranks out taste treats such as apple pies, pumpkin rolls, granola bars, turnovers, and cookies. The overwhelming aroma at the Mill comes from our legendary Cider Donuts, featured in Gourmet Magazine as one of the top four donuts in the country! We offer tons of Pure Vermont Maple Syrup, as well as Vermont made Cheddar Cheese. All this happens in our sprawling general store filled with specialty foods and Vermont-made gifts and crafts. In our Apple Core Connection store, 50 feet across the driveway, the Grand View Winery offers wine and hard cider tasting. We produce several varieties of Fudge on site, which of course is available for tasting. Johnson Woolen Mills is there also, offering toasty and comfy clothing. As you can see, there's never a shortage of things to do, see, or taste!
Small groups and family visits are self-guided and are open to the public during our regular business hours 8:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. year round, 7 days a week.
Other local areas of interest-We are conveniently located right on Route 100, just 3 1/2 miles north off Interstate 89 Exit 10. This section of highway, known as "Enticement Alley", has become extremely popular due to the assembly of attractions along the route. Ben & Jerry's, Cabot Cheese, Green Mountain Chocolates, Danforth Pewter, Zeimke's Glass Blowing, Cold Hollow, the town of Stowe, Mt. Mansfield Gondola, and several other points of interest all lie in a ten mile section of highway. It's no wonder it is the busiest tourist highway in the state.
