“Cider Mill is neat; Corn Maze and Pumpkins, not so”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

We visited the Cider Mill on several good recommendations and were a little disappointed. The cider mill, cider, and donuts were really great as advertised but the other attractions were not worth the price. The playground area is fine but nothing extraordinary. The corn maze and pumpkin patch were not worth the price of admission. The corn maze was obviously hurt by the drought and the corn was hardly knee high. The pumpkins were present but there was no real organization to where to go to get there.

“Watch the apples and donuts being processed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

We stopped here after the Saturday morning Soccer game. It was a chilly day, in the low 40's. They have lots of vendor booths with many different things to sell. Mostly the usual kinds of things but some local artists also. Lots of food for sale, we did get a large bag of kettle corn ($6) which had just been made. Very disappointing though, small kernels! Watched the apples being cleaned and processed and then donuts being made also. Small store with lots of 'pricey' items for sale. Bought several dozen apple cider donuts ($7.95 a doz). Don't get more than you can eat while they are warm, not very good later on. Because of the chilly weather we didn't check out the corn maize.

“fun for a fall outing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

we enjoyed our trip to the cider mill and pumpkin patch. it was fun to watch the cider being made and bottled. the pumpkin patch/corn maze and other activities are a bit pricey ($8 per person over 3), but the kids enjoy it and the grownups liked the music (kudos to the pheasant pluckers!). so maybe bring a picnic and plan to stay a few hours.

“Pumpkin patch is not worth the price of admission”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

The cider mill is a pleasant excursion for families in the fall, but skip the pumpkin patch.
The mill is free, but there's not a whole lot to see -- just some machinery smashing apples and moving the pulp. It's a cool side trip if you're on the way to somewhere else, but don't expect to kill more than an hour or so here. The cider is delicious, and the apple fritter donuts are pretty special. The apples are trucked in, sadly. It would be a lot cooler if they had an orchard.
The pumpkin patch, which is open in the fall, is a giant rip off. They charge $8, and there's just not enough for the price. There are a few playground-type pieces, a hayrack ride that takes you to the actual patch where you can pick a pumpkin (extra cost), and that's about it. There's also a very large corn maze. In a typical year, it's probably cool, but after this year's horrible drought, the corn was not as tall as an elephant's eye. It was about knee-high.
The patch is not worth the price of admission.

“A nice little side trip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

If you travel through Louisburg, you should definitely stop at their Cider Mill for a couple apple-cider donuts or a cup of hot cider. There's a viewing platform for the little ones so they can get a glimpse of how their donuts are made.

There's a variety of goods you can purchase: apple butter, jams, kettle corn, soy candles, etc. If you visit during the autumn months their pumpkin patch/corn maze/hay-bale maze are all open for your fun!!

The lines inside the store to make purchases can often seem rather long, but moves very quickly!
