Blake’s Lyon Twp Cider Mill review, pics, and info. Blake’s Orchards has purchased the farm and cider mill formerly known as Erwin Orchards. Blake’s is bringing years of fall fun experience to the location and will expand on Erwin Orchards – this has already begun. Get ready for a large produce stand, outposts serving wine and hard cider, live music on fall weekends, and an expanded menu of cider mill treats!
I attended the Grand Opening days of Blake’s Lyon Twp and work has already begun on upgrading the Cider Mill facility and grounds. New signage and extensive work is being done to the indoor cider mill / market and outdoor grounds with the addition of tents and what looks to be some expansion in the areas outside of the mill/store.
If you’ve been to Erwin Orchards (I have many times), many facets are the same. The HUGE John Deere Trike Trail Track is still there and so is giant hay tower. The old Mr. Bee’s Big 3-D Adventure Barn is still up…. at least for now. Blake’s also seems intent on keeping U-Pick portions of the farm going. U-Pick raspberries (red & yellow) apples, asparagus and more were popular at Erwin’s in the past.

Blake’s learned well from their Macomb County Cider Mills. Blake’s has more than 100-acres to tinker with on their new site, I’m confident they will bringing much more to the new site in the way of entertainment. Perhaps they’ll even open a Blake’s Barnyard Funland portion of the mill ala their Armada location. I’m curious to see if they’ll bring their haunted attractions to South Lyon. Erwin Orchards famously ran spooky haunted hayrides for years before halting them the 2010s.
