There’s a dang fine reason why the Cold Hollow Cider Mill is both a top New England producer of fresh apple cider and one of Vermont’s most popular tourist attractions. It’s because we do it the real old-fashioned way, making pure cider with a traditional rack and cloth press built in the 1920s — and, by gosh, you can come watch. We press year-round, and we’re open seven days a week, from 8 a.m. till 6 p.m., closed only on Thanksgiving and Christmas.
After you’ve seen cider made, explore our vintage mill. Our shelves are stuffed with fine Vermont maple syrup, specialty foods and products, and you can sample jellies, mustards, and cider (sampling may vary). Watch our live bees make honey (behind glass!) in our Honey Corner. Honeybees are stars of the apple world, don’t you know — they pollinate the orchards each spring when the blossoms are out.
You’ll be lured by the warm aroma to try some legendary Cold Hollow Cider Donuts. Gourmet magazine called ‘em one of the country’s top four donuts, by gosh — and no wonder! Have ‘em hot with fresh Vermont coffee or hot cider, then choose some treats from our all-natural bakery. Apple pies, pumpkin rolls, cookies, homemade fudge ... oh, there’s lots more.
Across the driveway is our Apple Core Luncheonette and Beer Store (plenty of Hard Cider Too). While you’re there, be sure to try a free sample of our new hard cider, Barn Dance!
