It is with heavy hearts that the Board members of the Friends of the Cedar Creek Grist Mill have announced their decision to cancel the October 29, 2022 Annual Cider Pressing Event.
The water that powers the Cedar Creek Grist Mill comes directly from Cedar Creek. It enters the flume approximately 650 feet upstream from the mill and flows down the flume where it is used to power the mill. Due to the lack of rain and the extreme heat this summer, the water level dropped to an insufficient level to power the mill nearly 2 months ago. There is not currently an alternate, safe option available for powering the mill in the manner necessary to run the cider presses and the mill during the event. The upcoming rain forecast for this weekend will sadly not be enough to sufficiently raise the water level in time for this event to happen. The board members were hopeful to only postpone the event but due to many factors of organizing an event of this scale, it could not feasibly be postponed.
We are anticipating that the Annual Cider Press will be back in October 2023! The mill will continue to be open for visitors during our regular hours.
