reopening date

Staff Report • Special to

The Fly Creek Cider Mill announced it will reopen Saturday, Aug. 14.

The mill, which dates back to 1856, and has been owned by the Michaels family for two generations, closed at the beginning of the year because of the toll of the coronavirus pandemic.

The mill made the announcement on its website this week. The post read:

“We are delighted to announce the reopening of the Fly Creek Cider Mill & Orchard on August 14, 2021.  During the winter closure, we have re-structured so that the Michaels Family will retain ownership. We thank our visitors, fans, neighbors and Flavorful Rewards members for their patience and understanding during this difficult time. Most importantly our long-standing partnership with Farm Credit East enables this re-opening – the mill’s 165th year!
 Currently the mill’s team is preparing for the reopening by creating product, purchasing from vendors and performing some planned maintenance. Once we make the fudge, bake the pies and stock our shelves, we can open the door.

“Again, thank you for all of the support and encouragement over the last few months. We look forward to welcoming everyone back to make new memories at Fly Creek Cider Mill for generations to come!

“See you soon!”
