Blake’s Cider Mill Armada review, pics, hours, and info… Blake’s in Armada is, quite simply, the Cedar Point of cider mills. Blake’s Cider Mill is the biggest cider mill in Michigan and it also has the most to offer and the most fun things to do. The vision of Blake’s expands well beyond produce and cider. Its atmosphere is almost like a state fair during Blake’s weekly, all season Fall Festivals.
Blake’s Mill and u-pick orchards started in 1946 and they grew their business to include over 500 acres consisting of U-pick apples, raspberries, strawberries, cherries, peaches and pumpkins. Their selection goes well beyond the harvest season as they also have U-cut X-mas trees and seasonal assorted vegetables.

Blake’s itself is also huge and includes a general store. The store also is somewhat non-traditional as it includes other eats like popcorn, nachos and pretzels. Blake’s Cider Mill also pushes tradition by offering cider slushes and various candies that go beyond typical fudge and candy apples.
As famous as Blake’s is for its cider, they’re equally as famous for their entertainment. Blake’s offers Barnyard Funland low-scare fall fun in an almost carnival/playground atmosphere and the infamous Haunted Blake’s which serves up scariest nighttime fall thrills in all of Metro Detroit!
Blake’s Orchards and Cider Mill also features Blake’s Ciderhouse and Winery. A beautiful, modern location parked near the cider mill that features 6 flavors hard cider made from Blake’s fruits! For wine, Blake’s Winery features more than 7 kinds of wine to sample and purchase!
