Local Mill Hosts Apple Pressing Day and Free Cider
The Cedar Creek Grist Mill is a working museum, showing visitors the inside workings of a grist mill from the 1870s time period. It is the oldest building in the state of Washington that is still doing the job that it was built to do 126 years ago!
The Cedar Creek Grist Mill hosts an Annual Apple Pressing on the last Saturday of October. This year, it’s Saturday, October 29. The day will start at 9:00am and will end at 5:00pm, or when there are no apples left, and all the apple cider is gone!
Head to Woodland, WA to see all the conveyor belts and pulleys process over 8,000 pounds of delicious Washington state apples. This free, family-friendly event gets everyone involved! Hear the rumbling of the water and watch the apples turn to cider in an old 1800s era working mill! The floor is covered with sawdust and the apples smell and taste sweet. Come down, join the fun and take home a jug of fresh pressed apple cider.
The cider is free for the taking, but a donation of $2.50 per bottle is appreciated. Read about the history of the mill, and get directions at the website: http://www.cedarcreekgristmill.com.
