We love Frankiln cider mill because the donuts are delicious and so are the cider slushies! They have great honey, roasted almonds, caramel apples and different sweets that all taste great. We wish it would open a little earlier in the season like some other...More

Drove past it in April 2018 and closed, off season. From the looks, appears to be a good place to visit in autumn and enjoy the sights and smells of the fall season.

I like this place. It's close to my house. The problem is that it is closed much of the year. And part of the time it is open, it sells water ice and not the classical cider and doughnuts.
