Over a century old mill with awesome views from the back deck. Local delicacies for sale in the store and best price on apples anywhere. The cider mill is a must see in Jefferson county.

Open until Thanksgiving. The cider is now real sweet and full flavor. The shop has many cute country crafts and food. Cider donuts are hot and hard to beat. Walk around the side of the building at take a look at the waterfall.
