Activities

Milling around is part of the fun at the Fly Creek Cider Mill and there is no better place to start than by the Millpond. Located just behind the Mill, the pond is where water energy that drives the cider making machinery is held before releasing it through the turbine. It is also home for the Mill's friendly ducks and geese whose antics are entertaining to watch. The wheelchair-accessible boardwalk provides a wonderful place to sit, relax and enjoy a refreshing treat from the restaurant and bakery -- all the while taking in the beautiful view.

For the tractor lover the Mill offers an extensive collection of vintage John Deere equipment on display and at work around the Mill. A group of single-cylinder gas engines is often operating with their interesting hit-and-miss rhythm.

Children will not want to leave without exploring Tractorland next to the Restaurant & Bakery: a kiddie play area with a paved little-trike track and a wooden climb-on tractor. Plenty of covered picnic tables are provided for mom and dad to enjoy a food treat while the young folks work off their energy.

All these activities make the Fly Creek Cider Mill & Orchard a fun stop for any Cooperstown area itinerary.

 
 
We had a wonderful time at the Mill this weekend. The kids love feeding the ducks. We are from the Saratoga regions and have lots of special places here to visit, but none compare with our treks to the Mill.

What a fun place! We visited your wonderful Cider Mill in Fly Creek early this summer and had a great time looking, seeing and tasting. There is a continuing family tradition there in Fly Creek which I hope will outlive the ages of time.
