celebrating 160 years!!
Our mission is simple: We want people to leave happier than when they arrived. And that mission can be heard, felt, seen, and tasted in every single thing we do.
The gleeful sound of children’s laughter echoes in the background. The soothing water rolls gently along the river. The aroma of steaming fresh donuts and cider takes you back to a time in your childhood when life was full of mystery, friendships, excitement, fun, and adventure.
160 years ago – back before the constant sounds of car tires rolling on pavement and back before the glow of blue lights cluttered the air – there was Yates.
And after all that time, Yates is still here, and its spirit hasn’t changed.
The historic Yates Cider Mill name still stands for what has made people happy for so many years, and we are committed to staying true to our roots.
The name stands for simple pleasures – like enjoying the unique, rich, and full taste of cider like only Yates can make it.
The name stands for being a part of your own community – like making new friends and meeting old ones at the mill.
The name stands for taking a step back and taking in picturesque sights and sounds – like the historic, signature Yates water wheel where your parents might have taken a picture of you with your siblings, grandparents, or friends.
Yates is about much more than indulging in mouth-watering ice cream, walking along the scenic trails, picnicking by the river, or even visiting the goats at the petting zoo.
It’s about getting back to basics … getting back to nature … getting back to what’s familiar – even if it’s just for a little while. It’s about giving today’s families the opportunity to create timeless memories of their own.
