Fall Traditions Made to Last

For 40+ years, leaves on our trees change from a fresh summer green to bright hues of red and orange, as if nature itself is announcing “Let the fall traditions begin!”

Hot, muggy summer days become a faint memory when the first bite of cool, crisp air sets in. The fall season brings together families, friends, and communities; Friday night lights, bonfires and s’mores, camping with friends, and that first warm cup of Louisburg Apple Cider are all part of what makes this season so memorable.

This time of the year is always a favorite for us and thousands of our returning visitors because there really is nothing quite like autumn at Louisburg Cider Mill.

Making memories at Louisburg Cider Mill

At Louisburg Cider Mill, our family and staff have worked hard to prepare for the fall season. To us, it’s not just another season on the calendar; it’s a time to celebrate both old and new traditions and make lifelong memories.

Every year, we look forward to watching vehicles flood our parking lot as families, friends, and loved ones make their appearance for opening day at Louisburg Cider Mill. The sight of kids smiling and beaming with joy while approaching the grounds of the Cider Mill is something we never get tired of seeing. It’s a day we’ve all been waiting for and always a sign that great times and great memories are ahead.
