Hollenbeck's Cider Mill has been family owned and operated since 1933. From our humble beginning pressing cider in an old barn during the Depression, we have grown into making donuts, scratch baked goods, and selling a range of delightful products including jams, jellies, pickles, candy, maple syrup, honey, and cheeses.
We offer a seasonally varying selection of New York state apples throughout our entire season. You can expect McIntosh (Macs) and Cortlands all season long. We also carry Honeycrisp, Macoun, Northern Spy, Idared, Jonagold, Fuji, and other varieties depending on availability.
The Bakery is open and baking pies every day of the season except the 4 days leading up to Thanksgiving and Christmas. We will have Apple and Dutch Apple pie every day. We will also make Pumpkin, Pecan, Blueberry, Dutch Blueberry, Cherry, Dutch Cherry, Peach, Dutch Peach, Raspberry, Blackberry (Marionberry), Lemon, Lime, and Sugar-Free Apple pies. Our daily selection of pies is dependent on ingredient availability, orders, and the customers before you. If there is a specific pie you would like, we gladly accept pie orders 24 hours in advance.
We make donuts on Saturday and Sunday (9 am- 4 pm) from Opening Day until the weekend after Halloween. We pause to focus our attention on the Bakery through the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons and make donuts again starting in January on Saturdays (9 am - 12 pm).
We press our famous blend of cider using a Boomer & Boschert Knuckle Joint Press that's design was patented in 1870. From Opening Day until the weekend after Halloween, we press on both Saturday and Sunday. All season long we will also press during the week whenever we need cider. Our cider has no additives and is UV filtered, for the best tasting, purest apple cider.
In addition to all of those delightful homemade items, our country store sells a range of other products. We offer a wide selection of cheeses from the sharpest Cheddars to curds and spreads. Our local honey and maple products can't be beaten. Our selection of jams, jellies, preserves, dressings, including No Sugar Added options is impressive. No trip would be complete without a kosher dill pickle or piece of fudge!
