Close to a majority of suburban Detroit, this is a weekend staple for drinking apple cider, eating fresh donuts and snacks, feeding the ducks, watching an old fashioned water wheel (for pressing the apples), etc.

Oh my goodness! Everything is yummy. The aroma that oozes from this place is breathtakingly gorgeous! The youth love to feed the ducks their extra doughnut crumbs & I absolutely love the praline warmed nuts. This is an exciting place for me & an ideal...More

I like this place. It's close to my house. The problem is that it is closed much of the year. And part of the time it is open, it sells water ice and not the classical cider and doughnuts.

My favorite apple cider ever, and the best donuts in the area. Yum. I recommend going on a week day or early on a weekend to avoid crowds. I still like to watch the apples being pressed, the ducks playing in the creek, and the...More

What’s not to love about this place? It has a working Apple press, delicious cider and fabulous donuts! Parking can be difficult in the fall, but you have to try this place. It’s located in a small quaint town which is fun to visit also....More

A great place to visit when the apples are ready for cider each fall. Beautiful setting on the river and close enough to the city. Although it is a bit more pricey than other cider mills, in might be worth it.

If you live in southern Oakland County, you’ve probably been here. Classic place to visit. I just wish they had more than plain donuts. Cinnamon Sugar would be nice. Plus their pie prices are high. But you won’t be disappointed
