Yates Cider Mill started their spring season today. They began pressing apples for cider this morning and will continue for several weeks.

The spring offering includes three flavors of sparkling cider along with the regular fresh pressed cider, donuts, baked goods, caramel apples, cider slush, hot cider and other items. This year slush flavors will include apple, cherry apple and cranberry apple.

The springtime schedule is from 8 a.m. until 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. They will be closed on Easter Sunday.

Yates is a popular family destination due to its rustic setting along the banks of the Clinton River. A trail runs alongside of the river and picnic tables are available at the mill and across the street in the city park.

Parking is free and plan to spend at least one hour to enjoy the ambiance of the setting.
