Although we did not have any cider we did enjoy the cider donuts. We also bought their home made sweet pot wheat bread. Best bread I ever had. Worth a trip back just for the bread. Very nice store.

A great stop, but when was there all cider was gone and they had not started the harvest for this fall. They had no cider in stock. Only Hard Cider alcohol was available for purchase. Still all not lost as plenty of warm cider donuts were available. Try the free samples and look for the cute Christmas ornaments with old... More

A great stop, but let's not kid ourselves, it's mostly a big store. At least it was when we were there because there was no cider in production. They didn't even have cider in stock. Happily, there were plenty of warm cider donuts! These were some of the best we've ever had. I like that they aren't sugared, as many... More

Very big store with samples of their jams, mustards, dressings, etc. Lots of different souvenir options for foodies. Bought the cider donuts which although fried are very cake like and spongy. Very tasty. Didn't try the luncheonette next door but looked crowded.

Glad you enjoyed the Mill and our legendary Cider Donuts! Next time give the Luncheonette a try! We have plenty of seating, a wine tasting room, free hard cider samples, and the line for food moves very quickly! More

This is a tourist trap. It is essentially a large (overpriced) gift shop with a cider press that was not working. I don't think this was really worth the stop.

Kyle S, Manager at Cold Hollow Cider Mill, responded to this review

Sorry you weren't thrilled with your visit. Our press is currently not operating because we have no apples. We have to wait until the new crop apples are in and then the cider pressing will begin. We always suggest giving a call or checking our events calendar before visiting to ensure you aren't disappointed. More

The donuts are more traditional without sugar coating and delicious. We were disappointed they were sold out of cider. The restaurant that shares the same lot is outstanding and has hard cider on draft. Yum!

Just about every year around this time we run out of cider until the new crop apples are in. Very sorry to disappoint! Our Hard Cider is on draft and for sale in our Apple Core Luncheonette building! More

When we went the cider presses were not working so there was really nothing to see aside from a very pricey gift shop. They had some samples out which were ok. They had all sorts of sauces and jams which were really expensive. No cider samples though. Big disappointment! Stuff looked good... But no cider or cider presses. Nobody even... More

Sorry you didn't enjoy your visit. Just about every year around this time we run out of cider and have to wait until the new crop comes in! Also, our press is away getting repairs before our busy fall season. More

Another classic tourist destination with lots of tasty samples - treat yourself to a cider doughnut hot off the conveyer belt and you will be glad you did.

The shop was a nice emporium with local products and flavor and we bought some delicious donuts and cider. Unfortunately, we came close to closing time and werent able to take in the entirety of the mill. My husband liked the painting in the restroom. :) The glider benches outside were nice to relax but we didn't have enough time... More
