We made a recent trip up to the Cider Mill in Cashmere and what a great place to stop in North Central Washington!
The building is set right on the banks of Mission Creek and can be reached by heading through Cashmere and up Mission Creek Road. Cashmere is a very cool little town to visit and the Cider Mill is one more reason to pull off of Highway 2 when you’re passing through the area.
The facility specializes in a whole host of tasty concoctions, all based on their delicious apple cider. There are syrups, jams, jellies, and more that are all great to sample, and available for purchase too. There is even an apple butter milkshake that is unbelieveable!
The specialty is of course the apple cider though. The tasting room / gift shop is attractive and inviting. Shortly after entering, we were given the opportunity to have a tasting of several of the different flavors of cider that are all made right there at the facility. There are a number of different great flavors ranging from the tart to the sweet, and each having its own unique tastes and qualities. Some of the available flavors include Cherry, Old World Spice, Raspberry, Huckleberry, and Peach among others. They all taste awesome, we left with a bottle of Huckleberry and it didn’t last long once we got home.
Outside, there is a decent sized grass area, some picnic tables, an outdoor seating area, and a small art gallery. This makes a good location for a short break from a long car ride or just a chance to relax in the shade next to the comforting sounds of Mission Creek flowing by.
There is also a small stage outside and we were there in time to hear the award winning blues music of the power duo, RavinWolf. It was a very intimate experience and we thought it so good that we had to buy a CD on our way out. What a great place to sit and relax while listening to some good live music. If you are looking for something to do and you haven’t been there yet, check out the Cider Mill, it comes highly recommended.
