As the leaves change color and the temperature starts to cool, nothing screams autumn like pumpkins and apples. Eating an apple a day just got easier thanks to Jericho Cider Mill.
Fresh baked treats that feel home baked is within reach on Route 106. The Jericho Cider Mill is a small store that has been in business for over 150 years. The place is filled with an assortment of apples and apple related products. The cider mill gets its apples from one of the major apple producing areas in the country, the Hudson Valley.
The Cider Mill is a small, old fashioned house that is filled with apple goods and fall decor. Because of minimal parking, visitors should try to avoid peak hours, between 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. Visitors can park on the side of Route 106.
Jericho Cider Mill sells a variety of ciders, pies, baked goods, and gourmet apples. The establishment is known for their apple crumb pies, apple cider donuts, cider, and candy apples.
Senior broadcasting major, Marvi Sajid purchased an apple pie from Jericho Cider Mill last week. Visiting the cider mill is a tradition for the Sajid family. “Every year my family and I go to Jericho Cider Mill to get pies. It’s a tradition we have, and I love the pies,” Sajid said.
Senior broadcasting major, Taylor Hill loves fresh apple pie. Her favorite thing to accompany a warm apple pie slice is french vanilla ice cream scooped on top. “Even though I have a busy schedule, I would love to go one day,” Hill said.
Jericho Cider Mill is open 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. Monday to Sunday.
