The Fly Creek Cider Mill, located 3 miles from Cooperstown, off State Route 28 in Fly Creek will open for the season on April 1st.  Now in their 17th year of ownership, Brenda and Bill Michaels have developed the Fly Creek Cider Mill into a food-lovers’ destination through diverse products and programming targeted to create a flavorful visitor experience.

Over the course of the winter, the mill underwent renovation:  while the historic structure built in 1856 and the 1972 addition remain, all other additions were removed and rebuilt. The two main goals of the build were improved energy efficiency and visitor traffic flow.

The Mill’s first big Spring event will be the return of the CiderRun on April 23.  This is the fourth year for the CiderRun’s 10K/5K race through picturesque Fly Creek Valley.  The run benefits the Athelas Therapeutic Riding program.  For registration and more race information visit
