Another shot from my Photo Shoot at B.F.Clyde’s Cider Mill…

It is in Old Mystic, CT…

They open next weekend for the season so I am revisiting my folder of photos from their awesome place.

A Customer Review from their website:

Tucked away on a winding country road in Old Mystic, Connecticut, is the only remaining steam-powered cider mill in the United States—B.F. Clyde’s Cider Mill. The Clyde family has been making cider here since 1881, and the sixth generation of the family continues to produce cider at this National Historic Landmark that is truly an engineering marvel.

B.F. Clyde’s is the oldest continuous producer of hard cider in America, too! After a peek inside at the workings of the old mill, where apples are pressed into tasty beverages, we followed the signs pointing to the mill’s basement, where hard cider is sold in plastic jugs by the gallon and half-gallon. Bring a cooler if you’re a long way from home! Of course, we couldn’t resist the temptation to purchase the 28-proof “Black Out” cider. Other “potencies” and hard cider blends are available, as well. It’s best to wait to sample the hard stuff until after you’ve arrived home or at your accommodations for the evening.

But the good news is that you do want to immediately head inside the shop, where you can purchase a cup of some of the sweetest, tastiest cider you’ve ever consumed to wash down fresh-baked, tender, delicious mini-doughnuts.

The shop is stocked with not only the Cider Mill’s own products—cider, hard cider, apple wines, jams, jellies, apple pies, candy apples and Johnny Cake Meal ground on the premises in a grist mill that dates to about 1920, but with other local and regional products and produce—honey, maple syrup, fudge, pumpkins, gourds, Indian corn, cheeses, mustards and more.
