Five Things Friday: The Cider Mill

All the best things about fall, in my opinion, can be found at an Apple Orchard or Cider Mill. I’ve never lived more than half an hour away from one. Almost every fall, with family, friends, or just by myself, I would be there. The sights, sounds, and smells are unbeatable. In fact, I’m going to TWO of them tomorrow! Life is good.

Five Favorite Things About a Cider Mill

1. Fresh Doughnuts

Sweet doughy goodness. There’s nothing better than a doughnut fresh off the assembly line at a cider mill. Dip it in some powdered sugar and they’re perfect.

2. Apple Cider

Sure, it’s probably going to cost you double than what you’d pay at the store, but it’s doubly delicious.

3. Orchard Picked Apples

This is my husbands favorite part about going to the orchard. That whole saying: “an apple a day keeps the doctor away,” he’s living proof of it.

4. Picking Out Pumpkins

It’s so much fun to pick out the perfect pumpkin for turning into a jack-o-lantern.

5. Tracker Rides

It’s even better when you can get a ride on the tracker so that you don’t have to carry that giant pumpkin. I remember the best one my family ever found. It was huge! My dad struggled to carry it. We were so excited until it wouldn’t fit in the trunk and we had to get a smaller one. Drats!

Happy Fall
