Everybody has a little Vermonter in them. Independent. Capable. Authentic. When you visit our working cider mill, you and your family or friends will find your inner Vermonter. Your self-guided tour of our working cider mill offers an engaging rural experience that is unrushed and free of charge. Come learn how apples, bees, maple trees, and Vermont all get along well together. No wonder so many people come and see us again and again.
Enjoy this little mini-visit to Vermont.
Watching fresh raw cider being pressed the authentic (and rarely seen) way on our vintage rack-and-cloth press invokes a sense of wonder. The feeling is heightened by a FREE taste of the “good stuff” - especially for those who have never tasted real Vermont McIntosh cider.
Vermont aromatherapy? Watching homemade cider donuts being made is a treat for
Visitors love to watch the dough flying everywhere as the fast moving hands of our very talented (and very busy) bakery staff cook up all kinds of favorites.
Our live observation beehive is a way to say hello to our beloved pollinators. It feels good to understand how they do their critical part each year to pollinate the apple trees throughout our region.
Try Cider Jelly - our best seller and rarely found anywhere else – as well as many other Vermont favorites at our sample table.
Relax on our deck (we won’t rush you) with a sandwich and a hard cider and enjoy the view of the Worcester Mountain Range with us at our Luncheonette.
Above all, take your time. Cold Hollow is a friendly, unhurried place to be in the moment. A place to just linger, learn a bit, and love our Green Mountain state. Maybe even end up moving to Vermont…we’ve seen it happen!
We love the Green Mountains. And we’ve long been committed to a healthier planet. That’s why our solar orchard provides most of the power at the mill. Recycling shipping boxes and materials (we stopped using polystyrene packing peanuts in our shipping department long ago) also helps. So does our policy of not using GMO-modified ingredients.
Even our location brings a smile: We’re conveniently located right on Rt. 100 between Ben & Jerry’s and the village of Stowe. We always do our best to personally greet large groups and even try to ensure easy parking for your coach driver. There’s plenty to see and do, and your group’s “agritainment” experience here is free. So is our glorious view of the Worcester Mountain range. People also love shopping here, and we’re ready to ship any purchases your group might make. We require that large groups book ahead of time.
