Made from 100% pure French butter and European truffles. These butters are a perfect addition to pastas, soups, sauces, fish, steak, and a delicious topping for potatoes or any vegetable. For a special treat, spread some on a piece of crusty French or Italian bread. The rich earthy flavor of the truffles combined with one of the finest butters from France is a delightful addition to any culinary creation.

Lorelei Eurto: It occurred to me the other day that Autumn was in full bloom around us and I hadn’t sat down long enough to enjoy it! So Joe and I took the day and spent the day out and about. First we stopped in at Fly Creek Cider Mill. . . . Visit

The Andrews Family: . . . Last weekend, we went to Fly Creek Cider Mill with friends of mine from school: Tim, Kristin, and Jeremy. We also invited our Japanese friend Haruki along with us. The drive there was beautiful with crisp fall colors. I indulged in all of the Mill’s deliciousness – apples, cider, fudge, baked goods, wine, cheese, dips, sauces…. yum. And of course we fed the various ducks and geese there .   .  . Visit

Michelle in Utica NY: . . . From what I have heard this is perfect weather for the leaves to start changing big time, I can see it starting to happen and the air has that fall crisp smell. Makes me want to go to Fly Creek Cider Mill in Fly Creek and get some fresh cider, some Macintosh apples and cheese.   .   Visit

The Borns in Brooklyn: After our swim, we went to the Fly Creek Cider Mill, drank some cider, drank some hard cider, ate lots of samples, and bought some too. The play area was only for children 2-8, but we wanted to play anyway! .  .  . Visit

Dee Dee from the Gulf Coast: One thing I’m looking forward to when we visit upstate New York in a few days, is the Fly Creek Cider Mill & Orchard. This place has been a popular attraction for years and hasn’t changed in the least since we have been visiting there. The Cider Mill is an old wooden store building with hardwood floors, packed with all sorts of good quality merchandise .  .  .  Visit

Gold in the Clouds Blog: So while Dave played taxi-driver all afternoon and managed the home, my sister and I enjoyed a beautiful drive down to the Cooperstown area (about 1 hour southwest of Albany) to attend the Cider Mill Festival at Fly Creek Cider Mill and Marketplace. . . Visit
