Fly Creek Cider Mill Opens Full of Flavor. Mill to open for its 153rd season April 3

Fly Creek – The Fly Creek Cider Mill, near Cooperstown NY, will open a new and exciting season Friday, April 3 with expanded programming of its popular Taste of Fly Creek Series. The Mill’s Series stages in-depth focused tasting of selected specialty foods in addition to their daily offering of more than 40 samples. Opening weekend Pride of New York producer Palatine Valley Dairy will lead off with their fresh cheese curds. Most popular are Palatine’s plain curds but they are also seasoned with horseradish, jalapeno or garlic and herb spices. “Fly Creek Cider Mill is one of our largest accounts. We are honored to be the first feature in their Taste of Fly Creek Series,” said Brenda Hill of Palatine Valley Dairy. “We make the curds each week and deliver them right to the Mill. From the cow to the Mill we are talking no more than 4 days– now that’s fresh and most importantly, local!” A perfect high-protein snack, cheese curds are formed at the end of the cheddaring process by cutting up the slabs of cheese that have been formed after the whey has been drained off. The special curd tasting is scheduled for both Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 until 4:00.

The Mill’s extensive specialty food product line is enhanced this season with products such as blue cheese stuffed olives, blue cheese dip mix and apple butter syrup. Customer favorites are ready to go: Mill-made fudge, apple and corn salsa, and extra-sharp cheddar aged locally at Howe Caverns near Cobleskill. “We will have Empire and McIntosh apples plus our website offers many special coupons for customer savings,” said Bill Michaels, co-owner of the Mill. In time for Easter the Mill’s basketing experts are available daily in the Mill or On-Line Store to create a custom sweet or savory Easter Basket.

A new face will be greeting customers: James Richardson has been appointed the Mill’s Retail Experience Manager, dedicated to insuring that each customer’s visit is enjoyable and informative. James comes to the Mill with an art background from SUNY Albany and retail experience in clothing stores. James will lead the Mill’s team of friendly visitor service associates and cashiers.

The Snack Barn Restaurant will be open Friday, Saturday and Sunday until mid-May when it will remain open daily. The menu will feature the popular pot roast sandwich and hot soups or chili in fresh-baked bread bowls. Mill-baked pies, breads and cookies will be available seven days a week in the Mill Store.

It has been a long, cold winter. A trip to the Mill is just the treat Upstaters need. Before going, visit Fly Creek Cider Mill On-line for a complete list of events and the money saving coupons.

We visited your facility in July and loved it! We enjoyed the fruits of the farm pie, visiting your gift shop and feeding the ducks. My daughter and I were very impressed at the cleanliness and amenities of the restrooms. Thank you for a lovely afternoon and may you have many more years of welcoming guests that will come away as pleased as we were

We recently reviewed lodging in the Cooperstown area. We took an average review of all that had more than five reviews in the most popular review sites. We also looked at the Great to Bad Ratio and the total percentage of bad reviews and cane up with a few clear winners and some not so much. See the notes for definitions of Great, Good, Bad and Low. AND THE WINNER IS. . .

 . . .  Rose & Thistle Bed & Breakfast had the highest review average, the most consistent reviews combined with no complaints.

 

Rose & Thistle Bed & Breakfast Average*: 5 (Excellent!)
Great to Bad Ratio**: Zero Bad:1 (Excellent!)
Total Bad: 0% (Excellent!)

The Inn at Cooperstown Average*: 4.7 (Excellent)
Great to Bad Ratio**: 15:1 (Excellent!)
Total Bad: 6% (Excellent)

Otesega Average*: 3.7 (Good)

Total Bad: 14% (Good)

Mohican Motel Average*: 3.8 (Good)

T.J.’s Place Average*: 2.1 (Low)
Great to Bad Ratio**: 1:2 (Low)
Total Bad: 63% (High)

* Averages are of the most recent ten reviews.
** Great to Bad Ratio gives the ratio of five and four reviews versus the one and two reviews. If the ratio is more than one to one that is considered Very Good. This takes into account that on average the mad people will be more likely to complain than the happy people are to say the hotel was nice, but not by much more than a 1 to 1 ratio since many of the five reviews are owners and friends of owners, while many of the 1 reviews are competitors and friends of such. If as many people give great reviews over those who gave negative reviews, then the score is Good to Very Good.
