Watching Cider Making at Louisburg Cider Mill



Every year we visit the Louisburg Cider Mill (14730 Hwy 68, 913.837.5202). Tip: Call ahead and verify that they are making cider in the morning and that you will be there in time. If you've never been, this is a definite "autumn must do" in the KC area.

Fresh cider is made from scratch at the cider mill every day as a shipment of apples arrives (call ahead to ensure you'll watch cider making, but right now it is nearly every day). From your first step on the property, you'll smell the aroma of the cider. The apples are washed outside the cider mill itself before traveling up a conveyor belt to the mill for processing. 

Next, head inside the mill, where signs clearly describe the cider making process as machines whirl away making the delicious drink:

Then, head toward the main building, where windows gave a view of workers bottling the cider. Inside the Cider Mill Shop, watch as donuts were made with the fresh cider:

Before you leave, be sure to purchase some chilled sparkling cider (taste-test the flavors to determine favorites.... the raspberry apple cider is my favorite), a gallon of cider to enjoy at home, and a dozen of the BEST donuts in Kansas City (followed by Lamar's of course)!

In the fall, also visit the Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze.

If you're looking for some old-fashioned, one-of-a-kind, autumn fun with the family, the Louisburg Cider Mill is a must see!
