At Thompson’s Cider Mill we offer fresh pressed apple cider during our fall season. Generally, the sweeter the apples, the sweeter the cider.”
Generally, the sweeter the apples, the sweeter the cider. To keep Thompson’s Cider Mill cider from being too sweet, takes a delicate blend of as many varieties as possible. Those who have tasted it over the years regard it as the best old-fashioned pure cider around.
Thompson’s Cider Mill fresh-presses small batches to produce a unique artisanal cider that is made from a blend of seven to 25 different apple varieties. Many of the blends include heirloom or antique varieties that have become rare. They add immeasurably to the overall flavor, aroma and body of our sweet cider.
Unlike our hard cider, Thompson’s fresh cider is available during the fall season only. During the fall season, fresh pressed cider is available at the mill which is open weekends beginning on the Saturday after Labor Day through Thanksgiving Sunday. Our fresh-pressed cider is available in three sizes: gallon, half gallon and quart.
We have maintained our tradition of being open on Thanksgiving Eve from 10 am to 5:30 pm and on Thanksgiving Day from 9 am to 3 pm. We sometimes make cider for Christmas if weather permits. If so, we’ll post it on the website. Visitors are welcome to watch the cider making on Saturdays from 10 am until about 1 pm.
