For what is believed to be the first time ever, the Cider Mill in Endicott plans to operate in the winter - for a single day.

The beloved Union District landmark will open its doors on St. Patrick's Day. Doughnuts will be the only thing for sale for the special event.

The Cider Mill's Brent Natzle says a new Belshaw doughnut machine will be in operation for the special celebration. He says the unit can turn out 120 dozen doughnuts an hour - about double the speed of the machine it's replacing.

The Nanticoke Avenue business will be open from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. on March 17. The Cider Mill usually operates from early August to early December.

There'll be a limited selection of doughnuts offered for the one-day event: cinnamon, sugar, plain and a green iced special creation.

The Cider Mill will accept cash only for the special day. Customers are advised to wear a mask and adhere to social distancing guidelines.

Natzle says this apparently will be the first time the Cider Mill has made doughnuts during the winter.
