Welcome to The Cider Mill!! We are the Seiter’s!! Tom, Sue, Kristin, Kim, Brittany and Victoria.
Just a little background…
I guess it all began one snowy evening in our tiny kitchen, back in Michigan. After the birth of a set of twins, Brittany and Victoria, I found myself in a family room and kitchen for the better part of my days, watching children. Not that I really minded that, I signed up for it, but I was used to working. Okay, I was bored, going crazy, and needed something else. I have a lot of hobbies, buy my passion is cooking. I really don’t know how I got it—my mom was a June Cleaver cook—always good, but basic—a limited repertoire. Perfect, I need to improve. Back then, there was no food channel and definitely no good cooking classes around me—I have to hit the books. I read Settlement, Joy of Cooking and Betty Crocker numerous times, cover to cover, like novels. The next step is to move into action—I practiced. I started to cook for the neighborhood!!Thumbs up or thumbs down, I began my journey.
Years march on, kids grow, different people have different needs, times change, but my passion continued to grow. I started a catering company and it was successful right off the bat with the continued support of my husband Tom, and the girls. It was a family affair. Everyone was involved in one way or another—cooking, serving, or whatever needed to be done. Big parties, small parties, personal meals, you name it—I did it.
Once again, life happens, and after a great run in Michigan, we move to Arizona. Not knowing anyone in town, my business goes to the back burner, but my passion and core beliefs stay strong. I realize, here, I have so many resources to grow and fine tune my talent. I take advantage of the opportunity. Five years later, we are able to open The Cider Mill, with the whole family involved.
Please come and enjoy the comfort, warmth and coziness of The Cider Mill. I think you’ll embrace the atmosphere and want second helpings on the food!! The Cider Mill is about the closeness of our family and the dedication to the community to give back.
