“Only the Freshest New England Cider”

There’s a dang fine reason why the Cold Hollow Cider Mill is both a top New England producer of fresh apple cider and one of Vermont’s most popular tourist attractions. It’s because we do it the real old-fashioned way, making pure cider with a traditional rack and cloth press built in the 1920s — and, by gosh, you can come watch. We press year-round, and we’re open seven days a week, from 8 a.m. till 6 p.m. (till 7 p.m. in the summer months), closed only on Thanksgiving and Christmas. After you’ve seen cider made, explore our vintage mill. Our shelves are stuffed with fine Vermont specialty foods, and you can sample jellies, mustards, applesauce and other goodies. In summer, watch real bees make honey (behind glass!) in our Honey Corner. Honeybees are stars of the apple world, don’t you know — they pollinate the orchards each spring when the blossoms are out. You’ll be lured by the warm aroma to try some legendary Cold Hollow Cider Donuts. Gourmet magazine called ‘em one of the country’s top four donuts, by gosh — and no wonder! Have ‘em hot with fresh Vermont coffee or hot cider, then choose some treats from our all-natural bakery. Apple pies, pumpkin rolls, maple cream cheese pockets, apple-cheddar squares ... oh, there’s lots more.

We visited today and had excellent cider, good donuts and a really tasty sandwich. The sandwich bread was yummy and thick - tasty homemade bread not found much these days! The store is incredibly busy and very tight feeling when the store is busy. We were at the store at the time a bus was arriving and another was trying to leave making it a bit challenging and the lines to the bathrooms very long. The donuts were luke warm when we were served ours which surprised me as I was hoping for fresh warm donuts. We enjoyed the stop and think you will too but definitely be prepared for crowds on fall weekends!

Just a very short drive from Ben and Jerry's and worth a visit. Lots of things to try before you buy and staff friendly. Sampled and purchased their cider...very nice!
