With the leaves starting to change and the temperatures starting to dip, it's no doubt fall is in the air. And I don't know about you, but for me, the best part about this time of year is apple cider. Luckily, there are a few great places around this area where I can stock up on the sweet drink. Here are the best places near Utica to get some apple cider.
