Wow, thank you! I asked yesterday for some of your favorite apple cider donut places in the area and you all delivered. I plan on going to try a bunch of these over the next few weeks so thank you for your help, here's the list I put together with your help.

I had to gather all of the information you gave me into a list so I could check the places off after I tried the cider donut. It seems as if most of you either prefer Golden Harvest (Valatie), Lakeside Farms (Ballston Lake), and Ellms Family Farm (Ballston Spa). I figured it was rude of me to save that list for myself so here are the ideas you gave me for the best apple cider donuts in the area.
