We stopped here on parents weekend for Hamilton College. It's been open since 1927 and I can't believe that I've never been before in all the years I've gone to Clinton. It's such a charming place. They were in the process of washing apples and...More

Stopped in today before leaving Hamilton College. Donuts are fantastic and the cider is top notch as well. This is a must stop if in the area.

If you want good apple cider, terrific baked goods and super soups you’ve got to come here. Prices are reasonable and the homemade baked pies are incredible. There are some tables on the porch where you can enjoy your treats. It’s also fun to see...More

This place has high prices for products you can purchase elsewhere, (with equal or better quality) for less. I made the mistake of going here once, and never again. Big deal, you see a cider press in action, if you want to waste your money.

WE stayed at the The Hedges and noticed the Cider Mill almost directly across the street. Apparently the donuts are legendary so i couldn't leave Clinton without tasting them. And they were everything they're cracked up to be: cinnamon-y, tender and melt in your mouth...More

It is not just family with teenagers- it's for everyone! Originally they crushed the apples from local apple orchards and made cider. NY required cider to be homoginized, which required extremely expensive-steamed process, so now they call it apple juice. It is one of the...More
