07.05.16 Cold Hollow Cider Mill and Braggs Farm Sugarhouse

Tuesday, July 5, 2016 – After touring Ben & Jerry’s ice cream factory we drove over to Cold Hollow Cider Mill.  The mill was not in operation that day but we got to taste their apple cider which was delicious.  Other than the mill there is a large shop where they sell all things made from apples and from maple syrup including bakery items, jellies, etc.

They make cider donuts there and we enjoyed a half dozen of them!20160630_152853 20160630_152905

While this wasn’t a tour it was a cool place to visit!  From there we went to Bragg Farm’s Sugarhouse.

Their manufacturing season is in the Spring so they were not collecting and processing the maple when we visited.  We watched a video about how they do it.  These are some of the 2500 pails they collect the syrup from the trees in.

Our wonderful Boondocker’s Welcome hosts in Orange, Vermont, Marj and Lee treated us to a delicious dinner Friday evening.  We had a wonderful time visiting with them and getting to know them better.  We left their house fatter and quite happy!

Saturday morning we left their home and drove to Twin Ells RV Park in West Chazy, New York. It’s in upstate New York near Lake Champlain.

Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
