Homemade cider, expensive than other market cider, but worth the trip. Be prepared for long lines on fall weekends--parking at a premium. Very seasonal...closes late fall. Country store feel--very tight quarters--selling many New England products--some expensive. Plan on staying 4 hours or so. 20 minutes from Mystic--one hour from Providence or New Haven.

My first trip to the mill was with my husband and a friend. The mill is only open for a few months each year, which creates a frenzy when they are open. The parking lot is a zoo and most people skip it and instead park in the street. With cars parked on both sides sections of the road are... More

I didn't get to go in the cider mill, because it was closed for cleaning, but the bakery is phenomenal and I enjoyed shopping in the country store. Definitely a fun place to stop and the locals tell me the cider is fantastic!

it was the day before Thanksgiving and looking for things to do that are not Big Box. Always need something to bring along to a friend's gathering. So BF Clydes was a fun choice. Located not far from "casino-land" it is a nice country drive. One building features some tasty pastry treats including apple cider donuts- not the best around.... More

Original 1898 functioning cider press. So fun to watch this in action. It is the only steam engine run press in the country, I believe. You can watch them press then sample regular and hard ciders as well as some varieties of apple wines. There are other novelties in the stores as well. Oh, and I should mention the cider... More

We visited B.F. Clyde's Cider Mill this past weekend and found the place to be unique and hidden gem. The mill was fairly crowded so we were only able to peak in to see the cider making process but it looked pretty cool. We visited the store and found lots of tasty goodies. The hot cider was delicious and perfect... More

Stopped by on a weekday. Nothing going on. Just a store and bakery. Nice old mill. Nothing special. Went in to taste Apple wine. No one offered us any we walked out. Bought some cider donuts. Didn't taste like apple cider? Could be really nice if the grounds were kept up.
