About Us

The Fly Creek Cider Mill & Orchard is a historic, water-powered mill on the banks of Fly Creek in the heart of beautiful Central New York just minutes from Cooperstown. For more than 150 years visitors have witnessed the pressing of fresh, sweet and delicious cider creating an experience that has become a tradition shared by generations. The Mill Store Marketplace is the heart of activity with sampling of over 40 specialty food products, many made right at the Mill. Daily tastings include apple salsa, zesty salad dressings, hot sauces, preserves, aged cheddar cheese and Mill-made fudge. From the Farm Winery you can taste Hard Ciders and Apple Wines, another feature of the New York cider making tradition.

When leaving the heat of Florida to visit our NY relatives in the summer, I always make it a point to tour the Fly Creek Cider Mill. I absolutely love the varied specialty food items they sell there. What a surprise this year as the layout of the store brings out the explorer in me. Samples are abundant. I personally love their Apple Salsa. The fudge display was new this year. I was happy to see it pre-packaged – no more waiting in line and they still are generous with the samples. The new, upstairs Learning Center is incredible too. I've never seen such an array of antique apple peelers in my life. Although it was not pressing season when I visited, the design now allows viewers to look down into the entire cider making operation, and see their antique Press in action. Of course, the sweet cider is available to taste and purchase, too. In fact, I occasionally have some shipped to Florida. It arrives as if it had been squeezed from those NY apples yesterday. I look forward to squeezing in (no pun intended) another visit next year. It's one of the highlights of our trip north!!

You will find far more than cider here! They have a very large assortment of sauces, salsas, dips, marinades, cheeses, fudge, and a great deal more, with dozens of tasting samples available. I haven't tasted a single thing there that was not delicious. They also have an icecream parlor and mini cafe with outdoor ( but covered ) seating, rubber duck races for the kids and a large selection of beautifully hand crafted rocking chairs to relax in or purchase. Be sure to check what specials are on in the store. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. Enjoy!

A very nice experience! Great selection of apple-based product offerings and more! Extremely well organized. Very helpful and pleasant staff. Good education on apple processing for young and old alike. Outdoor games for kids too to further enhance your visit. Worthwhile.

Family friendly place with wonderful home made recipes. Staff is super helpful and kind. Great for families. Duck and chicken feed areas make you feel like a kid again. Love this place and will continue to come back as much as possible

Perhaps the most generous offering of samples that I ever experienced. I was able to purchase Christmas gifts in August. The gentleman who offered wine tasting was delightful.
