Who says fall is all about pumpkin spice and apples? This year try a Lobster Pot Pie with your cider or latte.

The pot pies, made by Irwin's Fine Foods in Utica, are stuffed with more lobster, by request. They are available at the Clinton Cider Mill where you can have one for lunch, followed by a delicious cider donut for dessert.

The historic Cider Mill, where people have been lining up for more than a century, is now open with new options, including the lobster pot pies and their age old cider and donuts.

The Mill first opened in Clinton in 1903 with a screw press, powered by a steam engine. A new hydraulic press was installed in 1927 and since then, the cider making process has stayed the same.
