Local Cider Mills to Enjoy This Fall

          Summer is ending and the fall feels are already enveloping around us!  From pumpkin spice everything to all the enticing color changes in the scenery, autumn in Michigan is one of the most beautiful times of the year in the mitten.  Before the first snow falls, Moceri Companies recommends its residents to enjoy the crisp fall air and fresh squeezed apple cider at the wide selection of cider mills in the area.

          Whether you enjoy a brisk afternoon walk or the scrumptious cider and treats, cider mills are a Michigan staple that any and all are welcome to enjoy.  To make the most out of the autumn season by getting out in the great outdoors, take a look at some of these cider mills near you!

Blake’s Orchard & Cider Mill

          Since 1946, Blake’s Orchard & Cider Mill is a local cider mill featuring some of the best known homegrown fruits and vegetables around.  Located north of 32 Mile Rd. and Romeo Plank Rd., Blake’s features a wide variety of activities, including an orchard featuring over 40 different kinds of apples, tours of the cider mill, hard cider and craft beer tasting room, and its own “Funland” play park for the kids… just to name a few.  You can also find varieties of Blake’s products being sold at many different local grocery stores near you!

Verellen Orchards & Cider Mill

          Located at the corner of the Van Dyke Freeway and 29 Mile Rd., this destination has just celebrated its 100-year anniversary this past June!  Verellen and its hard-working staff have also been voted the #1 cider mill of 2019 by Local 4 News and ClickOnDetroit.  With many different crops — from asparagus to oranges and russet potatoes — Verellen prides itself on offering only the freshest and highest quality fruits and vegetables to those in the area.  Don’t forget about all their exclusive order-only and seasonal pies, donuts, and sweet goods, too!

Pankiewicz Cider Mill & Farm Market

Goodison Cider Mill

          Set about a quarter-mile north of the Paint Creek Cider Mill, off Orion Rd., the Goodison Cider Mill is a local favorite open from the end of August until Christmas Eve.  Goodison prides itself on pressing apples for cider the old fashioned way with its traditional, century-old presses.  Also, home to their famous renowned pistachio nut bread, Goodison offers a wide variety of tasty fall treats, such as donuts, jams, hand-dipped apples, honey, and more!  Who can resist such delicious, homemade treats from right in your backyard?

Yates Cider Mill

          Right on the corner of 23 Mile Rd. and Dequindre Rd., Yates Cider Mill is one of the most well-known walking trails and cider mills in Rochester.  With the Clinton River flowing through the lush greens over the Yates Dam, Yates Cider Mill’s inception dates all the way back to 1863 with equally historic means to produce the most premium cider around.  As the weeks of fall progress, more and more apples ripen and are blended for a more rounded flavor.  While they might be known for their premium pressed cider, Yates also features activities for the whole family to enjoy, like a petting zoo, light shopping, and a gorgeous trail along the river.
