A Visit to Fly Creek Cider Mill

Along their way to meet us in Cooperstown, Tom and DJ stopped at a local cider mill they knew about and brought us a dozen apple cider donuts. Don't make that face -- they are SUPERB donuts. Moist and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. Along with the donuts, she brought a brochure for me to see. I'd been thinking about the autumn apple season in New England and hoped we'd find a nice cider stand somewhere along our travel.

So we decided to make the short 10 minute ride back to Fly Creek Cider Mill and Orchard, located at Fly Creek, New York. What a delightful experience. Here are some of the photos we took....

That' me. I'm in heaven among the apple cider, cheeses, 16 fudge flavors, wines and other food goodies.

Look closely to see the names of all these goodies. Notice the "moon pies" -- they are "Whoopie Pies" in Maine.
Remember, I'm in love with Maine -- Moose or no moose. 

DJ and me in our Maine sweatshirts... after several apple wine samples. Oh joy.
After sampling everything in the store, we made our way outside to have warm apple dumplings on the patio. Later we walked around back to see the non-sensicle stuff...

I'll call these "fluffy" ducks

That's all for now!

If you find yourself planning a visit to Cooperstown, you should include Fly Creek in your itinerary.
