Since I was a teenager the Franklin cidermill has been my go to cider and doughnuts. Situated in a small unique town there is always something to do. The pies and cheeses are a must along with their bratwurst.

The Franklin Cider mill is a great outing for families and visiting out of towners! The cider is delicious and my children love the donuts. Be prepared with cash in hand. The prices are high but worth it. You can also take items to go.

The Franklin cider mill is historic and wonderful. It is definitely a throwback experience for all ages. The cider is fantastic, the setting is really nice, the people are friendly, the outside shop area has nice products -- it is all good.

The line can get really long, but totally worth it! Actually going in and seeing the mill is so fun, plus the cider and donuts are delicious!

It is seasonal, it has many visitors in the fall to taste donuts and apple cider. Has a parking lot to accommodate the visitor for the car parking. Also has a old day farm equipment on display.

Apples, cider, doughnuts and more bring young and old back season after season. Relaxing place to sit feed the ducks, chat with family and friends and enjoy the delectable treats of the cider mill.

I have been coming to the Cider Mill since I was a kid. I love they still sell cider and donuts there. You can see the process and walk around on a nice crisp fall day. Not to be missed!
