Burrville Cider Mill

Joey has a Four day weekend. YAY! This morning I got to sleep in AND woke up to breakfast already made. Sounds like a great start to the day to me.

Yesterday we took a trip south to the Burrville Cider Mill. I had heard mixed reviews on it. "It's so small I wouldn't waste your time on it" vs "It's great we go every year". We decided to chance it. There wasn't much to loose either way, except for time which is never really wasted when you are with your loved ones.

True it is very small. There is only one press and a small sorting room. Behind the building we found this beautiful waterfall. Originally the mill ran on hydropower, but that was a couple hundred years ago.
Inside the small store we found these gems. Pure maple syrup (yummy with a slightly woodsy flavor), pure and fresh apple cider, cider doughnuts, dutch apple jam, and pumpkin butter. These made for a great breakfast...with pancakes i didn't have to make!

Today's agenda includes chilling in front of the TV and/or computer, puttering around the house, and possibly a trip to the Community Center. With the weather changing quickly we try to spend as much time outside as possible. I'm actually surprised at how mild its been. So far the weather doesn't seem too different from New Mexico's.
PS I don't seem to be able to cut and paste. I don't feel like trying to figure it out right now so sorry this is so disjointed.


  1. Cider milling! That is one aspect of East Coast living I certainly miss. In the Detroit area there were 4-5 mills all within 20 minutes from our house. Cider donuts...lucky!
    Enjoy your time off together!
