The Fly Creek Cider Mill & Orchard (Open All Year) is a historic, water-powered mill on the banks of Fly Creek in the heart of beautiful Central New York just minutes from Cooperstown. For 161 years visitors have witnessed the pressing of fresh, sweet and delicious cider creating an experience that has become a tradition shared by generations.
The Mill Store Marketplace is the heart of activity with sampling of over 40 specialty food products, many made right at the Mill. Daily tastings include apple salsa, zesty salad dressings, hot sauces, preserves, aged cheddar cheese and Mill-made fudge.
In 2016 the Mill was completely renovated to allow for expanded viewing if the second-story cider-making area. The new Learning Center is now the prime viewing area to witness the cider-making process on fall weekends. When not running a video demonstration may be viewed in the Cider Gallery.
