Milling around is part of the fun at the Fly Creek Cider Mill and there is no better place to start than by the Millpond. Located just behind the Mill, the pond is where water energy that drives the cider making machinery is held before releasing it through the turbine. It is also home to the Mill's friendly ducks and geese whose antics are entertaining to watch. The wheelchair-accessible boardwalk provides a wonderful place to sit, relax and enjoy a refreshing treat from the restaurant and bakery — all the while taking in the beautiful view.
For the tractor lover, the Mill offers an extensive collection of vintage John Deere equipment on display and at work around the Mill. A group of single-cylinder gas engines is often operating with their interesting hit-and-miss rhythm.
Children will not want to leave without exploring Tractorland next to the Restaurant & Bakery: a kiddie play area with a paved little-trike track and a wooden climb-on tractor. Plenty of covered picnic tables are provided for mom and dad to enjoy a food treat while the young folks work off their energy.
All these activities make the Fly Creek Cider Mill & Orchard a fun stop for any Cooperstown area itinerary.
