You can also see bees make honey behind a glass window. After exploring, relax in the wood-paneled visitor's reception area surrounded by barrels of delicious cider. Head to the gift shop to pick up some cider for the road, as well as artisan honey, maple syrup, cheese, and baked goods. Plan a Waterbury Center trip in moments using our itinerary builder.

  • Those apple cider donuts are just one of the many incredible things offered by this place. Food and baked goods are just so hearty and yes, fresh. We liked their coffee and sandwiches. The different Vermont goods offered are so delicious and tell a story. A must visit place and an experience
  • I like this place. Ended up visiting 3 times in 4 days. Of all the cider I have had over many years this stuff is the most addicting and unique. And there is no alcohol in it. Good video of the cider process, yummy donuts, friendly staff. Hot cider!!! Mmmmmm.
  • Great apple cider and apple cider donuts! Lots of other great products with local connections, too. We always take visiting family here to see the apple cider being made, for fresh cider and donuts, and for other local souvenirs.
  • Best apple cider doughnuts ever!!!! Can always find a gift from Vermont for anyone, especially foodies. So many unique jams and jellies, Beach Plum is my favorite. Also love all the sauces, dips, salsas, desserts, herbs, dressings and many the other condiments. And never forget to grab a gallon of cider for home. My kids love it warmed up after a day of snow sports.
  • Huge gift shop so much selection. The smell is amazing. Staff is awesome and friendly. The car full of people we had all had the apple cider donuts and didnt like them we thought it needed sugar. Very cool place.
