It wouldn’t officially be fall in Michigan without a trip to the cider mill… or three or four. Lucky for Michiganders, cider mills spread far and wide. Each is unique in its offerings—sugary treats, vegetables, wine, children's activities, spooky sites and picturesque spots for photo-taking. Here are a few cider mills you might consider visiting this season:
Erwin Orchards, Inc.: The no-apple scare won’t keep this happenin’ fall favorite from giving you the perfect cider-and-donut combo. Pick a pumpkin, make your way through the hay and straw maze, or simply sit back, relax and take in the scenic orchard and farm views on a wagon ride. If you're looking for a scare, check out the haunted attractions from 7:30-11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays in October.
61475 Silver Lake Road
South Lyon, MI 48178
Open 6 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Friday and 6 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday
Parmenter’s Northville Cider Mill: Not only is Parmenter’s the second oldest continuously operated business in the city of Northville, but it’s also a great place to take the family on a lazy Sunday afternoon. The little ones will enjoy climbing on the wooden train structure and watching the ducks in the pond. Take some apple or pumpkin butter for the road but not before venturing into the new Northville winery.
714 Baseline Road
Northville, MI 48167
Open 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday-Sunday
Spicer Orchards: Spicer Orchards offers a variety of party packages for those special autumn occasions. A bonfire and wagon ride can top off any evening of wine tasting at Spicers Carriage House Cellars. From fruit wines to hard ciders, you'll need plenty of cheese and chocolate to cleanse your palate to sample them all. Not a wine connoisseur? Slurp some steamy apply cider, and you'll be all set.

Fenton, MI 48430
Open 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday-Sunday
