  • My favorite place for cider. I was raised on this cider. You can taste the honey crisp in this mix. It does get very busy in the season so be prepared. They have many Michigan made products, fresh apples, and cheeses. Its worth the wait every year.
  • Love this place! Perfect for a cool autumn day. You can warm up with hot apple cider and warm cinnamon donuts. I love the old time setting and watching the apples being pressed.
  • A classic in Franklin, only opens for 3 months but it’s worth the visit. Excellent donuts, fresh cider and great hot dogs boiled in cider. And the staff is super friendly! Don’t forget to bring your family every summer.
  • Good cider, donuts, and apples. The land is beautiful with a little river to sit near. It isn't u-pick which takes some of the fun away.. but a decent selection of apples and products.
  • This is a must every time the family visits Detroit. The whole family loves it and you will see families of all ages who have been going for years. They have the best cider donuts and delicious fresh made cider. There is also a small farmers market out front. The press is open for viewing so you can watch the cider being made. They offer pies, slushies, and other baked goods too. If you are going to be in the area it's certainly worth the trip. It's pretty scenic so consider bringing a camera for some cute photos of you are going with kids. The Mill revolves around apple season, so it can feel like there is limited time to get there. The last day is always the Sunday after Thanksgiving.
