The Louisburg Cider Mill is a fall favorite among locals in the Kansas City Area. It’s located approx. 16 miles south of Overland Park, by taking 69 highway south to K-68 west.
Locals love the cider mill for their wonderful cider, apple cider donuts (they’re so good!), the Lost Trail Soda, and their country store. During the fall leading up to Halloween, they have a pumpkin patch and corn maze, each available with a fee. Another annual tradition at the Louisburg Cider Mill is their annual Lost Trail Days in June and Ciderfest at the end of September/early October.
Visitors can learn how the apple cider is made and see the process in action- the cider is made on site!
The country store has old fashioned candies, jellies, donut mixes, cider, and many gifts. Inside the store there’s also a window that looks into where the donuts are made- something kids of all ages enjoy.
If you’re visiting Louisburg in October, I recommend also checking out the Powell Pumpkin Patch. It’s located 5 miles northeast of the cider mill, about a 7-8 minute drive. Powell Pumpkin Patch has FREE admission and a huge selection of pumpkins. There is a small area for kids to climb and play, free hayrides, nature trail, and a corn maze (available for a small fee- sometimes closed if there has been a lot of rain). It’s a quieter place to visit for pumpkins compared to the cider mill, but personally I think it’s worth a trip to see both- pumpkins at Powell Pumpkin Patch and apple cider & donuts at the Louisburg Cider Mill. It makes for a great day trip in the fall!
