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.

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.

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.
