It’s that time again — warm apple donuts, fresh cider and pumpkin patch pictures. 

These are some of the many aspects that have helped Dunn Cider Mill maintain its success over the last 43 years. 

From the weekend after Labor Day to the last weekend in October, Dunn’s Cider Mill becomes the hotspot for many locals to come and enjoy some fall festivities. 

When visiting, it is likely to find long lines of hungry families waiting to get their hands on some of the mill’s fresh donuts and apple cider. 

This season, the apples used to achieve the famous cider, were running a little behind. However, that didn’t stop the mill from improvising and handing out fresh cherry slushies. 

Usually, the mill is used to having fresh apples on hand, so they are able to produce the cider right when the fall season begins, but the locals were definitely satisfied with the new addition to the menu. 

Along with the famous cider, the mill is well-known for its delicious donuts. Because they offer both cinnamon and regular, everyone who comes to the mill is able to find exactly what they are looking for to satisfy all their fall cravings. 

Food is not the only thing the cider has to offer. 

When pulling into the lot, visitors are greeted with a live band, corn toss, picture-perfect scenery and welcoming picnic tables to enjoy time with loved ones. 

For 43 years, Dunn’s Cider Mill has continuously proven to contribute to the overall aesthetic of fall and has no plans of closing anytime soon. 

The mill hopes to carry on with its regular festivities until they find something new to add the mix. With fresh, warm cider and hundreds upon hundreds of donuts, Dunn’s Cider Mill will continue to be the one-stop-shop for all fall-fun.
