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.

Review Comment Sampling . . .

Don’t miss out on this awesome place ‎ – Rob‎ – Fly Creek Cider Mill is an awesome place to visit near Cooperstown. On our last trip to Cooperstown we went to the Mill and we absolutely loved it. The kids loved it and my wife and I both loved it. We plan to go back often and shop online now regularly for their fudge and cider.

What a great family fun place for everyone. They have a cider mill that you can tour, a great gift shop with just about everything in it – Christmas decorations, . . . Karen P

. . .  gorge yourself on sauces, dips, cookies, and cider . . .‎ Ogiovetti

Free lunch! . . . yummy, lots of free samples. . . Go hungry and graze your way through the gift shop. In addition to the gourmet foods . . .

The shop is extensive and the sampling is great. However, my favorite thing was the strange ducks and geese that abounded, and feeding the flock. . .

‎ . . . well worth the trip. . . ‎

The BEST cider mill!!‎ – This place is awesome!! Hubby and I took a drive to Cooperstown over the weekend, and felt the need to stop to Fly Creek based on reviews that we read . . .‎

Great place to visit, shop.‎ The Fly Creek Cider Mill is an interesting, historic place to find excellent food & craft items. I recommend the cheese, fudge, cider, pies. . .

Fly Creek Mill is Terrific. Been coming here for years, this place is great! Sits out in the country a bit but close to town of Cooperstown, in small residential type area, is old country store. . .

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
