Visiting Cold Hollow Cider Mill

Visiting Cold Hollow Cider Mill

While we were in Vermont, we took a few hours off to do some sightseeing. We stopped at the Cold Hollow Cider Mill.  People come from all over to visit this place. Even buses pulled in while we were there.

They have many products from Vermont like Maple syrup, apples and cider and gift ideas. Although these are all enticing, what draws me here are the apple cider donuts.

They make their apple cider on the premises and you can watch them as they prepare the apples, place  them on the trays, smash them and draw out the cider. So lets take a look.

First they cut up the apples and then they go into a hopper that mashes them up. (I don't have a picture of that) then it comes out of this tube onto these trays. 

They start with a tray and then lay down cheese cloth material. Then they pump the ground up apples onto the tray.

Once the tray is filled, they fold the cloth over the apples and lay another tray on top and do the process all over again.

Once the required trays have been loaded, they move them under the press.

They press begins to squeeze the trays down and the juice goes into the trough and out to be processed. Look at all of that juice!

In this room where they make the cider, is a large barrel where you can get a drink of the fresh cider. It was so yummy! 

Now, it was time to get donuts. I was so excited to get and eat them, that I forgot to take a picture. This one is from their website.

They make them right there and you can watch as the donuts come off. They are still warm and I want to eat a dozen, but I resisted. Did you see that they make over 800 dozen during fall foliage? That's a lot of donuts.

They also have warm apple cider you can buy. I was in cider over load. This was fall in its best form for me.
