Watch Cider being Made Oct 14, 2008
Cold Hollow Cider is a combination snack bar, gift shop, and apple cider maker. I mentioned the cider last, but that is what they primarily do. They don’t have a tour, but the dun part of the apple cider process (the pressing of the apples) is easily view from a windowed area in the back of the facility. The entire process is illustrated with captioned drawings above the windows. The pressing process, particularly the part where they load the press, is very impressive. Free samples of the finished process are available.
The rest of the facility is not to be missed. They make apple cider donuts, fresh in front of you as well. While no free samples of the donuts are given out, they are cheap enough where that won’t matter. Don’t pass them up!
The gift shop, in addition to having many apple based products, has many other item non food items as well. Book, ceramics, local souvenirs, and items for the kitchen and home are everywhere.
We found it pretty easy to kill 90 minutes wandering, watching, and eating. Wandering and watching are free! If we are ever in the area we will definitely be back!
